Kimmel asks about ACA

Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is no stranger to on-street interviews where he finds out just how much - or how little - everyday Americans know about everyday issues, including pop culture, current events and politics.

In light of Affordable Care Act's insurance marketplaces kicking off open enrollment on Oct. 1, Kimmel had a camera crew ask unsuspecting people on the streets of Hollywood which plan is better -- 'Obamacare' or the Affordable Care Act? It appeared that not many people understood that 'Obamacare' is just another name for the Affordable Care Act, and so their answers for why they prefer one plan over another proved to be amusing. When the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" correspondent asks one man to confirm that "The Affordable Care Act is more affordable than 'Obamacare,'" the man responds with, "Just the name says it all."
