Greg Walden Makes It Into Stephen Colbert's Monologue... For the Wrong Reasons 



Last night's Late Show with Stephen Colbert featured Colbert reading a passage from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson or, should we say, Wayne Tracker's "secret" journal.

Before he dived in however, Colbert touched on the Congressional Budget Office's report on the new Republican healthcare bill, unveiled by none other than Congressmen Greg Walden last week. "24 million people would lose coverage,"the report estimated, "but it would save $337 billion."

Colbert poked fun of none other than Congressmen Greg Walden's attempts at refuting the criticisms of the CBO. "The CBO's score was incomplete because it does not include parts of the GOP plan not included in the current repeal bill," Walden had said.

"Yeah, that's not fair!" Colbert exclaimed in a sarcastic tone. "When they analyze the bill they didn't consider stuff that wasn't in there. Could be anything, health savings account, uh, nougat, a unicorn that gives prostate exams...."

What do you think of Greg Walden making into Colbert?
