Play of the Day: How Not to Deal With Obamacare

HBO

With some news outlets reporting that the Homeland Security Department has lost track of a million undocumented immigrants, The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno got a shot in at the federal government, saying that the National Security Agency couldn’t help because it only stalks American citizens.

President Barack Obama turned 52 years old Sunday, which prompted Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon to joke about Vice President Joe Biden’s maturity level. The event also gave Leno opportunity to take a shot at First Lady Michelle Obama’s plan to make Americans healthier and joke about NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

The Affordable Care Act remains a hot topic on late-night TV. Real Time’s Bill Maher took shots at the Republican-led House of Representatives, comparing their repeal attempts to a very unsavory character. Leno joked about the news that Congressional offices will be getting help in paying for the program, saying the act should be called “The Do As We Say, Not As We Do Act.”

Fast forward to 2:30 to see Maher compare House Republicans to an infamous Californian.
