Last Week Tonight segment on vaccines

There are many people who are against vaccinating themselves or their children. Most often they're afraid of adverse effects attributed to vaccines by hacks, liars, and profiteers of fear and confusion. The fact that close to all of these adverse effects have never been successfully linked to vaccinations or were straight-up lies doesn't help to convince them.

A couple of facts for the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare hater in your life

In yesterday's core segment of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver dug into the talking points Republicans have for discussing the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Let me repeat that: he didn't dig into the actual bill to repeal it, or the bill that would replace the ACA, but the talking points Republicans use to rile up support for the repeal.

As usual, it's an interesting piece that shows just how much Republicans hate the poor, the sick, and those in need.

Watch it and make up your own mind about whether it's a good idea to repeal it.
