Jimmy Kimmel: Senator Bill Cassidy 'lied' about health care bill

Jimmy Kimmel: Senator Bill Cassidy 'lied' about health care bill”

Cassidy dubbed it the "Jimmy Kimmel test". But at the moment, he's very, very angry.

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel delivered an impassioned monologue on his show Tuesday night accusing Sen.

Although conservatives attacked the comic for "politicizing" his son's ordeal, Cassidy seemed supportive.

"Not only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel test, he failed the Bill Cassidy test".

But after reading up on the new legislation Cassidy co-authored with Sen.

Kimmel criticized Cassidy for exploiting that media coverage-and Kimmel's own show-just to turn around and introduce legislation that went against everything he promised.

Cassidy first appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" back in May, where he initiated the "Jimmy Kimmel Test".

"I'm sorry he doe not understand". Cassidy to take it. "It's called a lie detector test", Kimmel said. "Otherwise, you might be screwed", Kimmel said. Bill Cassidy-co-sponsor of the Republicans' last-ditch Trumpcare plan, saying Tuesday that the Louisiana Republican "just lied right to my face" about promises he made to support affordable healthcare coverage. Under the new bill, he said, "more people will have coverage".

Jimmy Kimmel didn't pull any punches when it came to the Senate's new health care bill and U.S. Sen. "They're counting on you to be so overwhelmed with all the information, you just trust them to take care of you, but they're not taking care of you, they're taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies, and we're all just looking at our Instagram accounts and liking things while they're voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not".

Cassidy and Kimmel had become odd allies in the Republican health care debate earlier this year, when they agreed on something that's become known as the Jimmy Kimmel test. This referred to the headlines Kimmel made months ago after speaking about his infant son's heart condition and how millions of families wouldn't have been able to afford the same kind of care unless they were wealthy without the protection of a system like Obamacare.

Experts have laid out a simple truth: The bill would significantly cut federal funding - by $215 billion over the next 10 years, compared with Obamacare, per a new report - and that would inevitably lead to fewer people having coverage.

Republicans are rushing this bill through Congress because they know that the more time we have to learn about it, the less we'll want them to pass it. "They don't even want you to see it".
