Lewis Black Blasts Health Care Reform

Some hilarious lines in this “Back in Black” segment about health care reform on the Daily Show:

I’ve always had a great health care plan; I plan to someday care about my health.

And in response to a video showing Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell saying:

I had a friend in Florida who had a friend in Canada that died because the government decided he was too old for a certain kind of procedure.

Black fires back:

Your anti-health care anecdote is a friend of a friend? That’s not even enough proof for an urban legend. I have a friend of friend who brought home a dog back from Mexico. Then he shaved it. It turns out, someone had stolen his kidney and replaced it with a polaroid of my toothbrush up Richard Gere’s ass. Go figure!
