Transcript for Jimmy Kimmel takes on Sen. Bill Cassidy over health care bill
You're such a shitza. That happens. So Jimmy Kimmel. He's been calling out senator bill Cassidy over his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Cassidy said Jimmy doesn't get it. I'm sorry he doesn't understand. More people will have coverage and we protect those with pre-existing conditions. Is it the part you cut $342 billion from federal health care assistance. The part where states can price you out of coverage for having pre-existing conditions, maybe the part where plans are not longer required to pay for maternity care or pediatric visits. He seems to understand a lot. He seems to get it. Senator Lindsay graham and the few guy in the white house claims nobody is going to lose coverage. They're lying. There are certain things you can't leave to the states. I understand a lot of people -- conservative people say leave it to the states in an open market. You have to protect the most vulnerable among us. The fact that maternity care is up for debate. The fact a child born with a heart defect if the family could not afford that. I get if they want to leave some things as much as that bothers me. Mental health is personal to me. The idea you leave that to a state to decide. A lot of times the representatives don't look like the rest of us. I try to look at the expert associations. I looked up the American medical association had to say. They said they are opposing the graham Cassidy health care bill because it violates first do no harm. That's the American medical association. It will result in millions of Americans losing health care, health insure markets and decrease access to affordable health care. Then I looked at the children's hospital association. They say 30 million children will lose health care because they'll lose medicaid. Do I believe the guy in the white house and the senators or the doctors at the American medical association or the children's hospital. That's who I believe So I think -- you know, listen, if you have an issue with this, call your people. Call your senators and tell them -- Call them a lot. Say, hey, listen man, we all understand the bill is not perfect. Obamacare wasn't perfect. None of them are perfect. Fix the things that don't work and leave the things that do. We have that -- that is in your power. You can call and say don't skip this. Just to get on a lighter note they should be careful about screwing around with Jimmy Kimmel. This struck me funny. Chris Christie says he's not in favor of this bill, but he added I'm not going to get into Jimmy Kimmel he's not a serious person. That's a put down of a comedian which I don't approve of or appreciate. Jimmy said I'm not a serious person I never got my head stuck in a bucket of fried chicken. Just saying, as Melania said about her husband when you hit him he hits back harder, watch out for comedians. We'll be right back with more
