Stephen Colbert solves all the nation’s ills

Nikki Haley appears to have closed the door on appointing Colbert to the U.S. Senate, all because he didn´t know the state drink was milk. (Photo by John Shearer/Invision/AP, File)

With Congress locked in conflict, it falls to patriots like Stephen Colbert to come up with visionary solutions. Last night he offered up a simple strategy in one of the most trenchant editions of his regular segment, “The Word”.

Immigration? Health care? Mental illness? Unemployment? Elder care? Poverty? Stephen’s got the answer (as well as one of the funniest Shakira references you may ever hear.)

And Colbert is no policy wonk. His fix can earn you a trip to Puerto Vallarta on a private jet. You're welcome, America.
