#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Cassidy Over Health Bill “Scam”

Share
Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is usually a sunny, funny guy. But at the moment, he’s very, very angry. So angry, in fact, that the comedian and late-night host devoted his Tuesday night monologue to a rant about Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), co-sponsor with Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of the latest Republican attempt to gut the health care system.

You may recall that during last spring’s debate over Republican efforts to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, Kimmel argued passionately that every family in America should have the same benefits that saved his newborn son from a congenital heart defect.

Although conservatives attacked the comic for “politicizing” his son’s ordeal, Cassidy seemed supportive. He appeared on the show to present his “Jimmy Kimmel test” for health legislation, promising full coverage for every needy child and family, much to Jimmy’s delight.

But now he understands that Cassidy’s actual bill not only fails to provide any of the protections they agreed are so vital, but is even worse in some ways than previous Republican proposals (as he explains clearly and succinctly).

Furious that Cassidy lied to him on live TV, Kimmel is calling him out. And he has sarcastically invited the Louisiana senator to take a new “Jimmy Kimmel test.”

    What Sens Graham and Cassidy are doing, under the pretense of Federalism, is to destroy the ACA, including getting rid of the pre-existing conditions protections, and changing funding allocations from those allotted to States that supported the Medicaid expansion, to red States that rejected it. The “reform” that is being proposed is worthy of the anti-Christ.

    When are the Republicans going to take a good look at who benefits when Republicans are in office? They throw out words like fiscal responsibility and bureaucrats. But when you look at their records, they grow the national debt, start wars and give big tax breaks to the top earners. If a proposal to provide healthcare for everyone comes up, they fight it.

    It has always been a fact that when Republicans are in office, they are a party of spend, spend, spend; yet, when the Democrats are in office, they are the exact opposite. This administration is right on track! They keep saying they’re going to save taxpayer’s money, but apparently they aren’t doing the job.

    Saw Cassidy this morning making the rounds passionately claiming that more would be insured under his plan, and trotting out the canard of the one guy he’s heard about (no names or anything verifiable, of course) that’s paying a huge, unaffordable insurance bill to cover his child’s pre-existing condition. Completely sidestepped the idea that any governor of any state would take the out they’re providing of exiting the ACA entirely and leaving their constituents on their own.

    Just another self-servative, GOP, trickle-down believer that’s anxious to provide the urine to “trickle down” on the average taxpayer.

    This is the most cynical thing i’ve seen republicans do. They will take money away from states that had the smarts and looked at the numbers to help the people in their states, and give it to states that didn’t. They will then blame the ACA that the people in those states never got healthcare and take credit for the few that now will have something, after what’s left to balance red state budgets
