Country Music Awards send up Obamacare (Video)

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had a little fun at the expense of the White House on Wednesday night, mocking the new health-care law's Web site problems at the Country Music Awards.

Fast-forward to the 3:30 mark.

"Hey do you have that Obamacare?" Underwood asks when Paisley says he needs to see a doctor. "Oh, it's great. I started signing up last Thursday, and I'm almost done."

The two then fumble with a laptop in an attempt to sign up.

"Why's it spinning?" Paisley asks. "Why's it smoking?"

The two then proceed to sing a brief song about the law -- "Obamacare by Morning."
