Stephen Colbert decided to celebrate the death of Obamacare on Thursday night because the House Republicans voted to shut down the U.S. government if Obamacare is not defunded.
"The Colbert Report" host reminded viewers of his own "crusade" to "shut down Obamacare."
Then he showed clips of various Republicans predicting the end of Obamacare, including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) who said she wanted to take a “victory lap.”
Colbert then announced “Obamacare is dead!” as balloons fell from above, noted Mediaite.com.
He waved a styrofoam finger, stuck his tongue out lasciviously and twerked with "Death," who walked onto the set.
After finishing his twerking, Colbert said, "Maybe... because there are still a few wrinkles to iron out before this brave act of extortion takes effect.”
He later warned: "When it comes to stopping Obamacare, folks, there is no time to lose because the stool sample is about to hit the fan... Obamacare is coming folks, run for your lives. No wait! Don’t run for your lives, that will make you healthier, and that’s just what he wants!”
