Jimmy Kimmel takes on Trump as well as Cassidy-Graham. You should too.

From Vox, September 19, 2017:

Jimmy Kimmel became an unlikely figure in the Republican health care debate a few months ago when he reached an accord of sorts with Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), setting standards that any bill to repeal and replace Obamacare should meet.

Back in May, Kimmel interviewed Cassidy about the GOP's health care plans after the late-night host had been outspoken about his newborn son's open-heart surgery. He and Cassidy discussed what became called the "Jimmy Kimmel test." Cassidy has used that term repeatedly throughout the past few months of the health care debate.

Kimmel defined it like this: "No family should be denied medical care, emergency or otherwise, because they can't afford it."

The host ticked through related requirements that he said Cassidy had set for his own health care plan:

  • Provide health coverage for everyone
  • Prevent discrimination against people with preexisting conditions
  • Lower premiums for middle-class Americans
  • Prohibit lifetime caps on insurance benefits

"The new bill does none of those things," Kimmel said on Tuesday night. "Not only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel test, he failed the Bill Cassidy test."

On Tuesday, Kimmel slammed Cassidy, the author of the GOP's last-ditch plan to overhaul US health care, for failing to meet those standards in his own legislation.

"This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face," Kimmel said in his opening monologue, which was posted online shortly before his show aired.


Well, what do you know? The Tweeter in Chief decided to weigh in first on Cassidy-Graham with lie of his own. (See if you can pick it out.)

Them he became a defender of Cassidy himself and took aim at Kimmel himself.

Never fear. KImmel knew how to defend the truth best.

Trump lost this volley for sure.

Now, we need to have Jimmy Kimmel's back. Oppose Cassidy-Graham. The newest figures show 32 million people will lose health insurance if it passes. Call your senators at 202-224-3121, ask for him or her by name and tell them to vote no.
