“Yes, the president has been somewhat dishonest about the promise of his health care program,” Stewart said. “But here’s the weird part: his opponents have been lying like motherf*ckers about its effects.”
Stewart argued how the U.S. President repeatedly asked people to keep their health care plans if they liked them. However, after the program was launched on October 1, Obama changed his tone.
“What you said was, you can keep it. Period. Now what you said there was more like, ‘You can keep your health care plan … elipses. Comma, because it may no longer meet the minimum requirements, or your insurance company may stop offering individual plans or some other odd bureaucratic offshoot. Period. Emoticon depicting a combination of embarrassment and arrogance.”
The Daily Show host turned also criticized Fox News for being equally dishonest during Obamacare coverage and exaggerating the glitches in the program. He destroyed the conservative channel for calling the Affordable Healthcare Act "the worst law known to mankind, so many people seem to stretch the truth to attack it."
