Which would you choose for your healthcare, Obamacare or the coverage available through the Affordable Care Act? (We realize that most Blaze readers know that they are the same thing, but does the average person know that?)

Jimmy Kimmel, the host of an eponymous late night program on ABC, has carved a nice comedy niche by taking cameras to the streets of Los Angeles and exposing just how unaware most Americans are about...well, just about anything.

On Tuesday, Kimmel's crew stopped people outside of his studio on Hollywood Boulevard and asked them to choose between Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act. Hilarity ensued. One after another, almost every person confidently declared that they would prefer the Affordable Care Act over Obamacare. Many cited the same reasons that most people give when saying they don't want Obamacare:

  • "Socialism"
  • "Don't like being forced to buy something"
  • "I just think there are a lot of holes in it. It needs to be revamped."

At the end of the clip, the anonymous interviewer told victim #1 that Obamacare and the ACA are the same thing. Her response, "No they're not. Thanks, you made me look stupid!" The ever-gracious Kimmel put the woman in the front row for the show, saluted her and announced, "Welcome...welcome stupid people. You have a home here with me."
