President Obama Talks ‘Scandal’ and ‘House of Cards’


– WHILE I HAVE YOU,
I THINK IT’S ONLY FAIR WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT
OBAMACARE, AND THAT RHYMED. – WELL, YOU KNOW, WE’VE GOT
ABOUT TWO WEEKS LEFT TILL MARCH 31ST
FOR PEOPLE TO SIGN UP. IF YOU DON’T HAVE
HEALTH INSURANCE RIGHT NOW, YOU SHOULD GO ON HEALTHCARE.GOV, AND ESPECIALLY ALL THE MOMS
OUT THERE WHO MAY HAVE YOUNG PEOPLE–
26, 27– DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE BUT THEY THINK
THEY’RE INVINCIBLE AND NOTHING’S EVER GONNA HAPPEN
TO ‘EM. YOU KNOW, WHAT WE’VE SAID IS, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT LIFE
IS GONNA THROW AT YOU. YOU CAN AT THIS POINT
GET HEALTH INSURANCE FOR $100 A MONTH OR LESS. IN SOME CASES, LESS THAN
YOUR CELL PHONE BILL OR YOUR CABLE BILL, AND IT GIVES YOU SOME
FINANCIAL SECURITY. IT GIVES MOMS
SOME MENTAL SECURITY THAT THEIR KIDS ARE GONNA HAVE
DECENT CARE, AND, YOU KNOW, PARTICULARLY
AT THIS MOMENT WHEN A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE
AS THEY COME OUT AND THEY’RE GETTING THEIR FIRST
OR SECOND JOBS, THEY DON’T NECESSARILY
GET A BENEFIT ON THE JOB. NOW’S THE TIME
TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT. BUT THE WEBSITE IS NOW WORKING. HEALTHCARE.GOV ACTUALLY WORKS
THE WAY IT’S SUPPOSED TO, AND I HOPE THAT PEOPLE
TAKE ADVANTAGE, BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T SIGN UP
BEFORE MARCH 31ST, THEN YOU WON’T BE ABLE
TO SIGN UP AGAIN UNTIL NOVEMBER. AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY HAS
THIS OPPORTUNITY NOW. – IT’S DOING VERY, VERY WELL. I THINK IT’S SURPRISED– IT HAD A ROUGH START, BUT YOU’VE GOT 5 MILLION PEOPLE
THAT HAVE SIGNED UP SO FAR, WHICH IS AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT
OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE SIGNED UP, SO IT’S SUCCESSFUL. AND WHY IS THERE A DEADLINE? WHY IS THERE NOT JUST
AN OPEN-ENDED– BECAUSE I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE
HEALTH CARE, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK,
“OH, I’LL BE FINE,” AND LIKE YOU SAID, YOU NEVER
KNOW WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN. – WELL, ANYBODY WHO’S GOTTEN
HEALTH INSURANCE ON THE JOB, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE THIS THING CALLED
AN OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD. BASICALLY THE INSURERS, THEY’RE PRICING FOR A YEAR, AND THEN THEY NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED UP, WHAT THE RISK POOL LOOKS LIKE, HOW MANY ELDERLY PEOPLE ARE– HOW MANY HEALTHY PEOPLE, HOW MANY YOUNG PEOPLE. AND THAT’S HOW THEY SET PRICES
FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR, SO THEY HAVE TO CLOSE
THE OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD AT THE END OF MARCH 31ST. THEY’LL START BACK UP
SO YOU CAN SIGN BACK UP IN 2015 IN NOVEMBER, BUT IF YOU DON’T HAVE
HEALTH INSURANCE RIGHT NOW, NOW’S THE TIME TO CHECK IT OUT. AND AS I SAID, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE
WILL BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. I’VE GOT A LOT OF FOLKS
WHO WRITE ME LETTERS SAYING, “I DIDN’T VOTE FOR YOU, “AND I’M PRETTY SKEPTICAL
ABOUT OBAMACARE, “AND I HEARD ABOUT ALL
THE PROBLEMS ON THE WEBSITE, “BUT WHEN I ACTUALLY SIGNED UP, IT TURNS OUT THAT I’M SAVING
100 BUCKS, 200 BUCKS,” OR “I’M GETTING HEALTH INSURANCE
FOR THE FIRST TIME.” AND SO ALL I’M ENCOURAGING
EVERYBODY TO DO IS TO TAKE A LOOK AND SEE
WHAT OPTIONS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, AND MOMS OUT THERE,
EMAIL YOUR KIDS IF THEY DON’T HAVE
HEALTH INSURANCE AND TELL ‘EM TO AT LEAST
CHECK IT OUT, BECAUSE THEY MAY BE
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THAT IT’S MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE
THAN PEOPLE THOUGHT. – PEOPLE WERE STARTING
TO APPLAUD HERE. I THINK EVERYONE’S VERY GRATEFUL
THAT YOU DID THIS, AND I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT
FOR PEOPLE TO SIGN UP AND TO–IT’S JUST BETTER
TO BE COVERED. YOU JUST NEVER KNOW. AND BEFORE WE GO, FIRST OF ALL, I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME, AND I KNOW YOU’RE BUSY, AND IT’S THE END OF THE DAY AND YOU’VE GOT TO WALK THE DOGS
AND DO THE LAUNDRY, BUT BEFORE WE GO, I HAVE– DO YOU WATCH “HOUSE OF CARDS”? DO YOU WATCH “SCANDAL”? WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS
ON THOSE SHOWS? – YOU KNOW, I WATCH
“HOUSE OF CARDS.” I HAVEN’T SEEN “SCANDAL” YET, BUT MICHELLE HAS WATCHED
“SCANDAL.” I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
LIFE IN WASHINGTON IS A LITTLE MORE BORING
THAN DISPLAYED ON THE SCREEN. – I HOPE SO. – YEAH, YEAH. YOU KNOW, THE TRUTH
OF THE MATTER IS, MOST– IF YOU FOLLOWED ME,
MOST OF MY DAY IS SITTING IN A ROOM, LISTENING TO A BUNCH
OF FOLKS IN GRAY SUITS TALKING ABOUT A WHOLE BUNCH
OF STUFF THAT WOULDN’T MAKE
VERY GOOD TELEVISION. – OH. WELL, THAT’S WHAT I DO, AND WE MAKE GREAT TELEVISION. THAT’S WHAT– [laughter] – I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
THOUGH, ELLEN, THERE IS NOT MUCH DANCING
IN THE SITUATION ROOM, AS A GENERAL RULE. – THAT’S WHAT’S MISSING.
THAT’S WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. – THAT’S THE PROBLEM. – ALL RIGHT, WHAT ABOUT
THAT LET’S MOVE CAMPAIGN? MAKE PEOPLE DANCE IN THERE. – [laughs] – ALL RIGHT, LISTEN,
THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU SHOULD WATCH “SCANDAL.”
IT’S REALLY, REALLY GOOD. AND I’M GLAD TO HEAR– – THAT’S WHAT MICHELLE
TELLS ME. – IT IS.
IT’S GREAT. AND I’M GONNA CALL MICHELLE
AND GIVE HER A GOOD REPORT. I’LL TELL HER YOU’RE DOING OKAY. YOU CAN GO TO OUR WEBSITE
TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OBAMACARE. REMEMBER THAT MARCH 31ST
IS THE DEADLINE TO ENROLL, AND WE’LL BE BACK. MR. PRESIDENT,
THANK YOU SO MUCH. ALWAYS GOOD TALKING TO YOU. – GREAT TO TALK TO YOU AGAIN.
THANKS, ELLEN. [cheers and applause]

  1. My friend's parents were American. She was born in America and they are still paying off the hospital bill from the day of her birth 18 years ago. You have to pay for an ambulance to take you to a hospital. Have a heart attack? Pay up. I still don't believe that people want to live this way but it's not any of my business if you choose lower taxes over universal health care.

  2. I love how when he laughs he pulls his neck in and smiles wide. Its so cute lol. I'm going to miss my president :'(

  3. After reading some of these comments, WOW…if you think Obama is just so great, you are what's wrong with this country. My health care at work basically quadrupled in price because of this crap. Also, premiums are more expensive, copays are more expensive and given out less freely. The only people who it's affordable for is people who are BROKE. Must be looking out for the people who voted for him.

  4. Hi. I apologize if you don't appreciate promotional content in the comment section; but I made a special video for House Of Cards. If you could have a look at it on my channel, it would mean a lot! Thank you so much 🙂 #FU2016

  5. American tax goes mostly for war against other country or on aid to dictators , but they disagree if it goes for their health seriously if you are wealthy now you can't know for sure your son will especially with the middle class going smaller

  6. WELL….UH..UH….YA-NO, UH,UH,UH, I,I,I,I,I,I,YANO…..UH UH YO, ,,UH,YO
    what a studering fucking lying fool……this idiot makes GWB look like a Harvard genius.

    WELL YA-YO….UM..UM….LIE..LIE…YO UH, UH,UH

    goes to show you this moron couldn't tie his shoes without a telepromter

  7. This guy has done nothing for the African American employment situation either.. and yet he is African American. Hopefully there are kinder presidents on their way who can help them.

  8. Fuck its annoying how politicians do that "thumb on finger" thing instead of pointing because its deemed aggressive.

  9. Rip off. In Greece the private health insurance is 150 euros a month. Plus it is public and many underprivileged people like gypsies and immigrants are attended for free even if they were involved in a gang fight for free (I witnessed a case of a gunshot victim of a gypsy drug dealer gang being attended for free in the public hospital). The US is so far behind and they have so much more money and better infrastructure.

  10. I'm 13 so I skipped the part where he talked about insurance but from readying all the non Americans saying how crappy america health care is idk how happy I am too be 18😂😁

  11. he's Always avoiding with jokes when they ask whats really going on behind the scenes, behind the nice smile and facade.

  12. Gotta Love Obama Care. can even see a doctor in the ER anymore because they're understaffed overworked and underpaid. the insurance I have isn't covering the surgery I need until the Mass Gets bigger. I guess 5 inches on a 1.7 inch ovary is not big enough yet

  13. 3:58 It wouldn't, because then, people would see the truth, not the fake world that's presented to them on television

  14. One has to ask: "How would Frank Underwood respond if he were asked the same question?". If I had to guess, his response probably wouldn't be too different. Just saying.

  15. If u seen the movie Circle on Netflix, House of Cards & Scandal then please think bout this scenario…
    What if HOC and Scandal cast were in the same dark room and they were in the same situation, who would be the last one to stand?

    I think it would come down to Frank Underwood and Papa Pope. Seems like Circle was just chess game and these TV shows past of the chess pieces.

  16. 3:30 I can't stand when he does that with his hand. Conway adopted that in HoC and it looks just as bad, on purpose though.

  17. Of course Obama likes "House of Cards" and "Scandal", they are full of corruption which is something he knows a lot about. American politicians always talks about how rich their country is yet they can't afford FREE medical service. Why can't they be like Britain and their NHS? Every nation should have FREE medical which is paid through national insurance contributions when working.

  18. ah yes, the good old days when the president was presidential and the whole world wasn't constantly at risk of fucking exploding…..on another note, Obama's little laugh at the let's move joke was adorable <3 What a wonderful, pleasant man. Probably the best president that's been in office, certainly in modern history if not ever

  19. Bitch, Obama bankrupt our country and bankrupt DNC. I wanted Hillary to win and so thankful today she lost.

    Now knowing she purchased a bio by Podestas and McCain for nine million and she sold twenty percent of are Uranium to Russia. She kidnapped 33 children from Haiti to give to Soros for sex trafficking and organs. However her kidnapper was arrested and Bill took a friends plane to rescue the kidnappers. Knowing Soros money fund manager had a sex Dungen and raped his daughters and kidnapped and raped children and women. Hillary took money from Soros who chanel money through, open Borders and Black Lives matters. Ellen what happened to you. Your friends are Pedos, Weinstein and Clinton Rapist, spirit cookers and thieves.
    WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

  20. Boring my ass. Anyone who compare a picture of him from 2009 to 2017. He had jet black hair and looked really young. The man is very beaten up.

  21. Wait … so all the the waging wars, extermination agendas and all the lobbying is fake??? Hmm … go ask the millions of Iraqis, Lybians and Syrians who loved us have been killed and their countries are ruin … you hypocritical moron. House of Cards is spot on … tbh kinda surprised it was allowed to air.

  22. I'm currently watching this and start wondering, where did it go wrong with USA. Such a classy and charasmatic president, I wish our country had one like him.
