Maher: Obamacare’s problem isn’t too much socialism, but rather ‘too much capitalism’

NBC’s Meet the Press can always be counted on for a laugh, and they delivered again this morning with a softball interview with Bill Maher, who complained of too much money in politics. Harry Smith sat idly by while the one-percenter said the richest one percent vote Republican, all while a bunch of Obama-supporting one-percenters who run the network no doubt nodded their heads in agreement.

Oh, and the failing of Obamacare is “too much capitalism,” or something:

SMITH: Maher’s sardonic smirk has held head forth Friday night’s on HBO for more than a decade. He says if the country has a case of the blahs, he’s not surprised. Take health care, please. Was ObamaCare a mistake?

MAHER: The problem with ObamaCare is not too much socialism. It’s still too much capitalism. The reason why it’s so screwed up is because we have to have this Rube Goldberg plan that allows for pharmaceutical companies to get their cut and insurance companies to get their cut and hospitals to enrich themselves and doctors to get rich. It should be a non-profit thing. Perhaps elections should not be a profit-making endeavor or cost $2 billion.

There’s too much money in the election process (and Obamacare), says the guy who cut a check for a cool million to a pro-Obama super PAC in 2012.

Update: Jonah Goldberg has the best advice when it comes to a Maher interview.
