S.C. Policy Council President Ashley Landess got to play the straight woman in bit on "The Daily Show."
She appeared on a report about states, including South Carolina, that have rejected Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.
Landess explained why rejecting the expansion was good for the Palmetto State but noted how the first three years are free to the state.
"You guys can't afford zero dollars?" reporter Al Madrigal asked.
Never miss a local story.
She countered, "Does any plan that starts with, "My congressman had a great idea,' ever turn out to be a great idea?"
An expansion supporter then started a list -- civil rights, clean air, clean water, federal highway system and immunizations.
