Colbert on the health(don't)care bill & the legislative process
The newly House-passed health(don't)care bill is only a third of the way toward passage. In the process he educates us on the nightmare this will cause to millions. Of note is the Republican rationalization that giving States the right to eliminate pre-existing condition coverage or essential health services won't really happen because "no state would be crazy enough to ask for them." It's an admission that these provisions are crazy. And yes, Republican controlled States are indeed crazy enough to do just that. They're the ones who wanted to eliminate these provisions from the start.
