Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Bill Cassidy, Makes Another Health Care Plea

Jimmy Kimmel made another plea on health care last night and called out Senator Bill Csssidy for not living up to the promises he made on his show.

This as the Senate is making a last-ditch effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare before the September 30th deadline.

"This new bill actually does pass the Jimmy Kimmel test," Kimmel said. "But with this one, your child with a pre-existing condition will get the care he needs, if — and only if — his father is Jimmy Kimmel. Otherwise you might be screwed."

"I don't know what happened to Bill Cassidy but when he was on this publicity tour he listed his demands for a healthcare bill very clearly... And guess what? The new bill does none of those things."

"Not only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel test. He failed the Bill Cassidy test. He failed his own test."

"Healthcare is complicated, it's boring — I don't want to talk about it — the details are confusing, and that's what these guys are relying on. We are all just looking at our Instagram accounts liking things, when they are voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not."

"We can't let them do this to our children, our senior citizens, our veterans, or to any of us," he said.

After displaying the groups that were against the bill, Kimmel displayed an unflattering picture of Cassidy and asked: "Do you trust them or do you trust him?"

"We want quality affordable healthcare. Dozens of other countries figured it out. And if not then stop using my name because I don't want my name on it," he said now speaking directly to Cassidy.

"There's a new Jimmy Kimmel Test for you. It's called the Lie Detector Test. You're welcome to stop by the studio and take it anytime."
