“Sunday’s politically charged Emmy’s may have been the lowest rated in history, but that’s not stopping Hollywood elites like comedian Jimmy Kimmel from pushing their politics on the rest of the country”, Kilmeade said.
A graphic on the screen behind Kimmel then displays over 20 names of prominent health care groups like the American Heart Association, Kaiser Permanente, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and the AARP.
“Oh, I get it”. It required surgery to fix it when he was three days old.
Shortly after that plea by Kimmel, GOP Sen.
Kimmel did have the bill’s co-creator Bill Cassidy on his show back in May. Cassidy claimed that any bill he would support would have to pass the “Jimmy Kimmel test“. Lindsey Graham, S.C., Dean Heller, Nev., and Ron Johnson, Wis., as their last-ditch effort to replace the Affordable Care Act.
President Donald Trump and Sen. This bill would, among other disgusting things, undermine coverage for pre-existing conditions that is now guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Jimmy Kimmel Live is on ABC weeknights at 11:35. Oh, he’s such a fan, I think he’s been on the show. Maybe if Congressional Democrats were that bold in their critique, they would attract some more media attention to the issue and, more importantly, generate some more political momentum for their ideas about how to fix healthcare.
While Kimmel and Cassidy verbally duked it out, another man entered the fight earlier in the week. Kimmel had already talked with Cassidy in prior months, who agreed with him on television that every American, regardless of income, should receive health care. Cassidy’s response was a clear: “Yep”.
But Kimmel didn’t stop there.
The Louisiana Republican said Wednesday morning that Kimmel “does not understand” the bill.
To be fair, Kimmel, by his own admission, isn’t an expert on health insurance.
The plan also allows states to apply for waivers that could effectively price sick people out of markets by allowing insurers to charge them more for care. The monologue, in which Kimmel excoriated the bill’s namesake, Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and reeled off a list of the organizations that had also opposed “this frightful bill”, quickly went viral, racking up more than a million views in 36 hours. But he won’t. Instead, as he noted in a statement today, “We have a September 30 deadline on our promise (to repeal the ACA)”. The television star’s use of his show to discuss his son’s preexisting condition – coverage of which is guaranteed under Obamacare – has made Kimmell one of the more prominent voices in the health policy debate.
On the September 21 episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live“, Kimmel took aim at President Donald Trump, saying in his opening monologue that the American leader is so clueless about health care that he “doesn’t know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid” and “barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka”, his wife and daughter, respectively.
