Watch the Same Americans Say They Hate Obamacare But Love the Affordable Care Act


Just in time for the official launch of Obamacare, Jimmy Kimmel is at it again and this time he's out to prove just how little Americans understand about the new health care law. After asking random pedestrians on the street if they prefer the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, he finds out that many prefer the former rather than the latter, despite both being exactly the same thing. Watch them try to explain their decision and try not to burst out laughing.

Sure you could say there was probably a selection bias involved, but what Jimmy Kimmel encountered in the street, is also visible in official polls conducted across the country.

What did you think of this video? Did Jimmy Kimmel just set these people up to make fools of themselves, or does the clip demonstrate just how little people actually understand about the new health care bill?

Let me know what you think on Twitter and Facebook.
