Bill Maher admitted at the outset that the Obamacare rollout has been a “big fuck-up for liberals,” and while he didn’t want to be stuck in an uncritical liberal bubble, he also couldn’t help but recall a time when President Bush screwed up on a colossal level and apologized for nothing. Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, and Valerie Plame all joined Maher in still making clear the GOP’s at fault here.
Sharpton argued, “The objective was not to have a good website, the objective was to provide health care.” He also found it odd that the GOP’s trying to fix a site “for services they don’t want to render,” while Moore said for young people, “of all the things to fuck up to that generation, the internet… Obama looks like their parent.”
Maher argued the GOP is still at fault here for Republican-led states attempting to fight the state exchanges instead of embracing them, because if they did, “the fucking thing would work better.” Moore found it hilarious a Canadian internet company that got fired by the Canadian government, so in other words, the U.S. hired “reject Canadians who have their own health care.”
And on the idea of a website not working, Sharpton pointed out, “The whole government didn’t work for 16 days because of them!”
