Over the past few years, Adam Carolla has become a hero to low-information conservatives. Among other things, Adam’s anti-Obamacare stance endeared him to faux-conservative contrarians.
But when Adam revealed his ideal healthcare plan recently, longtime sidekick Bald Bryan noted that it sounded a lot like Obamacare– and included an individual mandate and subsidies for the poor:
My version of…utopia is that…everybody who’s capable of [paying for it, pays for it]…I’m gonna carve out the whoever just physically is not capable of [paying into the system]…that’s what a society is, the other 96% need to come together and float that 4% that’s physically not able…we don’t let that bottom whatever percent fall through the cracks.
The system is: Everybody’s got to have some skin in the game…you don’t just get health care. You have to buy it.
But then “Bald Bryan” was like:
I agree w/ everything that you said. But [w/ Obamacare]– there is an individual mandate! That’s the controversial part…you and I agree on that. Yes, you must buy healthcare.
At which point, after nearly a decade of bitching, Adam decided it was a good idea:
Okay, good…I think we’re on the same page.
