Jennifer Hudson Promotes Obama Care in Funny or Die ‘Scandal’ Spoof

Confused about the new Obama Care laws? No worries, with the government at a standstill, Jennifer Hudson plays “The Fixer” as Lydia Cole in this Funny or Die skit “Scandalous,” a spoof of Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope on the popular drama Scandal.

Jennifer (or “Lydia”) searches for people with major secrets, only to find everyone comes to her to ask about the new healthcare laws. Thanks to Lydia Cole, if you don’t know, now you know!

The video is part of a Funny or Die initiative that enlists Hollywood A-listers to raise awareness about President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law, which shutdown the government in Washington this week. Hudson, Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys and Amy Poehler are among the power players involved in the Hollywood-Obama joint initiative to encourage Americans to sign up for coverage.
