Jimmy Kimmel proves people still don’t know Obamacare is the Affordable Care Act

BTW

When open enrollment began in late 2013, Jimmy Kimmel sent out a camera crew to see whether people preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. It’s a trick question—they’re the same thing—but it nevertheless stumped them. But now, as the GOP begins the process to repeal the ACA, Kimmel’s crew went back out to see if Americans had learned anything in the past three years.

As one Facebook user allegedly demonstrated in a viral post last week, some still don’t realize that the ACA and Obamacare are two names for the same piece of health care legislation. It turns out that the people Jimmy Kimmel Live talked to on Hollywood Boulevard have no idea either.

They aren’t all against Obamacare, but they’ve got a preference and they’ll tell you why. And for one woman who hates Obamacare because of President Barack Obama, it’s quite a rude awakening when she’s told the truth.
