After senator senator bill chassis of Louisiana was on my show back in May and promised to health care plan. That pass what he called the Jimmy Kimmel tests he named it that my son Billy had open heart surgery shortly after he was born he needs two more surgeries in that experience. Really opened my eyes to how difficult life can be for other parents in that situation. And how important it is that families are covered like we are.

Does not sufficiently protect those parents or their children or anyone really and so I called them out on that he's going around tell people it past the Jimmy Kimmel test.
