A while back, Jimmy Kimmel had a Senator Bill Cassidy on his show. Bill PROMISED Jimmy that he would write a bill that would make sure that Jimmy’s son would remain able to have health insurance. See, Jimmy’s newborn was born with a heart defect and is only able to live because the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — makes sure those with preexisting medical conditions are able to be insured.
Well, it turns out that Cassidy is a Republican and *surprise* Republicans are half-witted white supremacist LIARS. Cassidy is the Cassidy in the Graham-Cassidy Republican Healthcare poison pill.
Surprise, it wipes out coverage for people with preexisting conditions.
Jimmy had to endure some anti-science cretins who came out against *him* for calling Cassidy out for lying right to his face on national TV.
Of course, first came Cassidy himself. Then Lindsey Graham. Then Fox talking slime, Brian Kilmeade and was followed by some condescending tripe out of Chris Christie’s fat mouth (even though he, too, was even against this sick bill.
So, Jimmy sat down with his son who is alive because of Obamacare, and wrote a nice monologue response to Cassidy and Lindsey Graham.

As you’ll see in Jimmy Kimmel’s video from his show last night, below, Kimmel basically roasted to charcoal all involved in this sick, bigoted mess of a tax giveaway to the super-rich under the guise of “healthcare,” and also noted that:
- The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would gut $243 BILLION from federal healthcare assistance.
- States would be able to price you out of your of coverage under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill if you dare have a preexisting condition.
– This means that if you have a preexisting condition like MS, a heart defect, cancer
in remission, diabetes, etc., that you may be granted healthcare, but it would be
allowed to be so expensive as to price you out and then not even cover your
preexisting condition anyway.
- Federal funding disappears completely after 2026 under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill.
- The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would no longer make insurance companies pay for essential care like maternity care; cancer screenings; or pediatric visits.
- The American Medical Association (AMA); the Muscular Dystrophy Association; the the National Multiple Sclerosis Society; Blue Cross / Blue Shield; the ALS Association; America’s Health Insurance Plans; the Cistic fibrosis foundation; the American Medical Association (AMA); the American Hospital Association; the Association of American Retired Persons (AARP); the National Council for Behavioral Health (represents more than 2,000 mental health and addiction treatment groups); the American Academy of Pediatrics; the American Cancer Society; the Cancer Action Network; the American Diabetes Association; the American Heart Association; the American Lung Association; the Arthritis Foundation; the National Health Council; and the March of Dimes all spit on this vile bill.
Kimmel shows he very much gets it. It’s Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, along with Trump and all of the rest of the Deplorable anti-science, pro-rich daddy tax break Senators who actually back it who don’t.
Even with as much of a BAD joke as this bill is and with as ZERO support as it has, don’t assume it is going to crash and burn. It is still up to YOU to activate and make it DIE. Until we depose this criminally illegitimate poseur of a President and right the good ship America, we are going to have to FIGHT for every breath. Nazis never let up. These Nazis have an ex-KGB spy for their leader.
Flood the lines of these “swing voters” with phone calls and tell them mitts off ACA.
Start making the calls!
