VIDEO: Will Ferrell and Jon Hamm Stick Up for the Insurance Companies-photo

Will Ferrell, Mad Men's Jon Hamm and a host of celebrities put a hilarious spin on the heath-care debate in a new spoof public-service announcement on Funny or Die.

Check out the video as the Elf actor and his cohorts stick up the real potential victims of health-care reform—the insurance executives who stand to lose millions of dollars—and let us know in the comments section: Where do you stand in the health-insurance debate?

    I'm 40 yrs old! I have insurance & i surely don't want this country to be like Canada! I just had a hysterectomy and a woman in Canada says since there is free health care in Canada, she had to wait 1 yr. to get her surgery! A doctor's visit takes 3 months in advanced! omg! You would never be able to see the doctor! DON'T TOUCH OUR HEALTH INSURANCE! I LIKE IT THE WAY IT IS!

    So ridiculous! I haven't heard anything about Will Ferrel or any other celebrity in this video willing to fork over a check to the un-insured. So why should anyone else be willing to lose out on money or morals for the poor. BTW, these "47 million people" w/o insurance, 10-12 mill. are illegal, 10-12 are in the 18-24 age bracket and don't want it, and 10-12 mill. are making $75,000+ per year and choose to pay out of pocket for their health care. Really hope more people become informed, before they choose to sit in a waiting room with 300 people smashed in, it for a week before they can see their doctor, or get told they have to wait 3 months for any sort of surgery, including life-threatening ones! umm so illegals, and young people shouldn't have free health-care why? They are still going to the hospital when they are sick, and we are still paying for it out of our pocket, so why shouldn't they be covered, that's why its call INSURANCE. Also the theory that the govt is just going to take everything over is silly too, its an insurance option... not a govt takeover of the health-care system.... dope

    Im 24 and i would love to have Insurance. So are my friends, and they would all love to be able to go to the doctor. The people "choose" to pay out of pocket because they can't get coverage over "preexisting" conditions. And did you actually say "lose out on MORALS"!?!?! Umm...i thought the moral thing to do was help one another. The good Christians ALWAYS pick and choose what parts of the bible to follow. And lastly, stop believing the two people Fox News dug up that supposedly didn't get surgery they needed. Waiting rooms at ER's are like that (crowded) because ...dum dum dum....they don't have insurance to see a regular doctor! And dude who left the first comment, these celebrities are not as rich as insurance companies...come on, the dude from Reno 911 isn't a billionaire. They too pay taxes like everyone else, but they pay more, so they're saying "yes, here, take my money from my check and pay for people to go to the hospital." stupid f*ck

    Fox is not a news network. Fox news describes itself as an entertainment network in spite of the "news" in its name. Will Ferrell et al making fun of the larceny and murder committed by the insurance industry is funny because of who they are. The petty compliant that the cast of this video is wealthy has absolutely no bearing on the fact that health care in America is a mess largely due to the excesses of big insurance. What we see here is a certain percent of the population who are so violently opposed to anything Obama does or says that they will side with their own worst enemies, in order to see that he doesn't prevail.

    It might be funnier if the general public knew the first thing about insurance. And why would give a rats a*s about what these rich people have to say? Aren't they just as rich as the companies they are mocking? They have plenty of money to not even need insurance.
