An Obamacare CMAs roast poked fun at President’s Affordable Care Act in a skit by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, all the heat for Obamacare has caused POTUS to issue an actual apology to those who’ve lost their insurance.
Obamacare has been mocked by many. All the comedic greats including SNL and Jon Stewart (you know you’ve made an impact when you get these two shows’ attention), now even the country music set is getting in on the fun. Though the CMAs are supposed to be simply about a celebration of country music, apparently they just could not resist a nice Obamacare CMAs roast.
A little run down of the skit does a pretty good job of bringing the laughs:
“Ow! Oh God! I twerked my back! I twerked it good!” Paisley howled, right in the middle of the “song”. Carrie Underwood pointed out that he wasn’t using “twerking” properly to which Brad replies “Yes it is, twerking is a medical term Carrie.”
The skit continues with a couple more jokes, casually steering back into Obamacare territory: “Hey, do you have that Obamacare?” Underwood asked Paisley. Paisley feigns ignorance of Obamacare so Underwood pulled out a laptop to comment on the slow and troubled website.
“Oh it’s great, it’s great…I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done!” Underwood said eagerly. “Let’s go to the website and get you signed up!” This of course, was the perfect time to break into song, performed to the tune of George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning”:
“Obamacare by morning …Why is it taking so long? I’m gonna wind up with hemorrhoids, if I sit here till dawn. Well, I’ve got cataracts and dementia, oh this is getting on my last nerve. Obamacare by morning, over six people served!”
They definitely played to the right audience, who laughed at every turn. Some Twitter users, though, weren’t too amused:
No Everyone didn't watch CMA awards. I didn't and neither did many others. The stupid song about obamacare sucked.

Conservative TV personality Eric Bolling heartily approved the skit, and commented on the audience’s reactions:
“You could see the real, true Republican conservatives, heart and soul of the country, laughing. Meanwhile all the Hollywood seat fillers who aren’t supposed to be there were all nervous, they’re all looking around like ‘should I laugh’?”
Another TV personality, Jedediah Bila, also weighed in with approval:
“I love what they did with the Country Music Awards, I think it’s really gutsy. These people have to go back to their Hollywood friends. They’re going to take a lot of heat for that when they go back to liberal Hollywood.”
So what do you think of the Obamacare CMAs roast; funny or not so funny?
