A Democratic congresswoman told her colleagues at a House hearing Wednesday morning that the debate over a bill that would grandfather in otherwise canceled group plans under the Affordable Care Act reminded her of a comedy skit about "whiners."

"I don't know how many of you recall years ago on Saturday Night Live, there was a segment entitled, 'The Whiners.'" said Anna Eshoo of California. "You know, they sat on the sofa and all they did was whine. They were a broken record. And I can't help but think of that segment on Saturday Night Live."

Watch the video below (the appropriate segment begins at around 16:10):

Here's an example of the SNL sketch to which Eshoo refers.
