Jon Stewart: Obama 'Somewhat Dishonest' About Healthcare But Republicans Are 'Lying Like Motherf*ckers'

Nov 06, 2013

On Tuesday, Jon Stewart tore into the latest issues with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, most notably the fact that President Obama's promise that if you liked your insurance before, you could keep it wasn't entirely true. But, as is often the case, there were even bigger liars to fry.

After rolling clips of Obama contradicting himself on the policy, Stewart pointed out, "So, yes, the president was somewhat dishonest about the promise of his healthcare program, but here's the weird part, his opponents have been lying like motherf*ckers about its effects."

The rest of the segment focused on politicians and pundits from the right pulling out all the stops to characterize a legitimate problem as one of the worst tragedies the U.S. has ever seen.

Watch the clip above and let us know if you agree with Jon Stewart's take.
