John Oliver is at it again. This time he’s questioning why midterm election coverage has largely been focused on the U.S. Congress when no matter who’s in control nothing will get done. So far this session, Congress has passed just 185 laws. Oliver believes it’s the state midterm elections that should get the coverage. State legislators have passed more than 24,000 bills so far this session. Why so many bills? Oliver credits ALEC—The American Legislative Exchange Council.
Watch this hilarious, must-see segment from Tonight with John Oliver. It’s the perfect comic relief for voting day.
