"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night took a "Closer Look" at single-payer healthcare -- something that Colorado is contemplating and that Bernie Sanders has called for.

"The state that was one of the first to legalize weed in the U.S. could now also be the first to pass single-payer healthcare," Meyers explained. "Colorado doesn't care what the rest of the country thinks. Next they're gonna change the state bird to the middle finger."

In the Colorado State House, the amendment is appropriately numerated 69, "because in this health-care plan everyone gets taken care of," Meyers added.
