The hilarious rap video that mocks Dems’ ‘people will die’ health care narrative

Powered by Topple

Playing on a narrative first ushered in by bombastic former Congressman Alan “Die Quickly” Grayson, ReasonTV parody musician Remy Munasifi made a hilarious video mocking the ridiculous rhetoric Democrats use in attacking the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare.

The video features Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., engaging in her typical hyperbole while critiquing the GOP eliminating taxes associated with Obamacare.

“These cuts are blood money. People will die,” Warren proclaims from the Senate floor.

Playing fictional Sens. Max Hyperbole and Guy Knowsbetter, Munasifi uses the line in hilarious policy proposals.

“People need kidneys, it’s sad to decree, but the senator’s hoarding one more than she needs,” Sen. Hyperbole raps as he pushes his “Mandatory Organ Donor Act.”

“I offer this bill and hope you will vote aye. Unless, of course, you just want people to die!”

This is but the latest in videos from Munafisi, who has drawn millions of viewers with his satire.

Another of his better-known efforts is a parody of the scandal involving the “architect of Obamacare,” Jonathan Gruber, titled “Don’t Tell ‘Em”– Gruber said it was because of the “stupidity of the American voter” that the health care law passed.

Munafisi explained his rationale behind the parody video Friday during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

“This used to be a country where if you had disagreements, at least at the end of the day you would recognize the other person probably has the same goals you do, we just have different ideas how best to get there,” he said Friday.

“Now it seems that if you disagree with somebody, you’re a murderer or you’re a racist or whatever the buzz term of the week happens to be,” Munafisi added.
