'Saturday Night Live' Mocks VP Joe Biden and Healthcare Reform

November 15th, 2009 9:31 AM

In its opening sketch last night, NBC's "Saturday Night Live" mocked Vice President Joe Biden and healthcare reform.

With the President out of the country for a week, Biden, played by Jason Sudeikis, has picked the lock on the Oval Office in order to get something big done while Obama is gone.

He opted not to solve what's going on in Afghanistan because it's "a mess - it can't be fixed...It's worse than Scranton."

As for fixing the economy, "We already did it...The stimulus is working."

With that in mind, Biden opted to reform healthcare by "[caving] in like crazy!...The President wants to pass a healthcare bill so bad that he will literally sign anything" (video embedded below the fold, h/t Story Balloon): 

That brings us to number three: healthcare. Now here's something I can fix, and here's how we're going to do it: we're going to cave in like crazy. That's right, the President wants to pass a healthcare bill so bad he will literally sign anything. You can water it down however you like. As long as it's a stack of paper with the words "Health Care" on it, hey he'll sign it. 

Probably quite true, dontcha think?

Interesting the good folks at "SNL" not only recognize it, but are willing to tell the American people.
