Many entertainers visited the White House today for a meeting of the presidentâs âEntertainment Advisory Councilâ on Obamacare. Everybody knows the government canât fashion a workable health care system without planning for subsequent train wreck management, and thatâs where Bon Jovi, Will Ferrell, Oprah and the rest will be asked to use all their talents to convince people the health care law doesnât suck.
Among the visitors to the White House was âFunny or Dieâ host Billy Eichner, who appears in the above photo with actress and former Saturday Night Live cast member Amy Pohler.

The name of the group struck a couple of tweeters as interesting considering the topic is health care:

So far the Democrats donât seem to be bothered by the irony of the word âaffordableâ in the title of the law, so we doubt that the words âor dieâ in the name of a supportive group will matter either.
