Senator Bill Cassidy
Kimmel is Wrong
… My Health Bill Works

Senator Bill Cassidy respectfully disagrees with Jimmy Kimmel as to whether his new health care bill is the right fix to Obamacare — but as for that “Kimmel test” … uhhh.
We got the Louisiana senator Wednesday on Capitol Hill — where he and Lindsey Graham are trying to get a new health bill passed to repeal and replace Obamacare by the end of the month — and he says Kimmel’s misinformed about what this new law would do.
He says it WILL protect folks with pre-existing conditions, and WILL get more people covered in general. Jimmy believes the opposite, saying the bill gives states more power to allocate money from the government — and he thinks that will backfire.
Jimmy went on the attack on his show Tuesday night … saying Cassidy’s bill is too complicated … and furthermore, he lied … in Jimmy’s eyes.
One thing is clear from Cassidy here … the so-called “Kimmel test” he once endorsed might be out the window.
