Jimmy Kimmel Proves People Don't Actually Know What Obamacare is

Jimmy Kimmel took a moment in the midst of the government shutdown to really get down to the nitty gritty, sending Jimmy Kimmel Live's camera crew team to the streets to hear people’s opinion on Obamacare vs. the Affordable Care Act.

Hopefully, you'll realize that these two are the same thing. Unfortunately we can't say the same about the people in the video, who remained confident that the option they were against was unjust and ineffective. One person went so far as to call Obamacare un-American in comparison to the Affordable Care Act. These few individuals are not alone, as a recent CBS poll shows less than half of Americans have a clear understanding of the Affordable Care Act.

The nitty gritty here? Stay in school! Or at least correctly understand and be able to communicate your views:


Thank you Jimmy Kimmel for that one.

How likely are you to make Mic your go-to news source?
