Watch: John Oliver Exposes The Gaps In American Healthcare

On the Nov. 1st edition of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver addressed the medicaid gap, which he assures us isn't a clothing chain, "where you can buy khaki hospital gowns sown by children in India." Rather, it's a term referring to the 3.1 million Americans who aren't getting the same level of healthcare as others because state governors have refused Obamacare.

"Healthcare is like a pair of gym shorts," he quips. "Even if it covers nearly all of what it's supposed to, you're still left with some problematic gaps and terrible things can happen."

The results of tomorrow's gubernatorial elections could determine whether 500,000 Americans gain better access to medicaid or remain stuck in the gap. Check out the full segment for more insights:


On Flatbush Avenue, tucked amidst the nexus of four iconic Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and Prospect Heights), medical cannabis company Citiva opened up their newest location at the turn of the new year. Walking through the shiny glass door, you’re first struck by the sleek tidiness of the front lobby. Both the dispensary's resident pharmacist and receptionist greet visitors as they clear patients (as does any medical dispensary in the country) before allowing them through to the retail room.
