Jimmy Kimmel blasts back at Sen

"Back in July Republicans tried a plan called the Better Care Reconciliation Act", Colbert continued.

The legislation, which he co-sponsored with Graham after three previous failed GOP repeal attempts, would likely leave at least 15 million fewer Americans insured, and would also kick the issue of lifetime insurance caps over to the states. And this new bill actually does pass the Jimmy Kimmel test, but a different Jimmy Kimmel test. "But I just think if you look at the average chart of a male in America, I think I'm pretty much on target". "It offers complete shovel coverage". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to hold a vote next week, just ahead of a September 30 procedural deadline for it to pass the U.S. Senate on a simple-majority vote. It's a race against the clock. They are playing politics with our healthcare and the lives of our families by weakening such coverage. It's not Barack Obama or Bernie Sanders.

"Look how gray he's gotten now", Colbert joked.

Cassidy said he would only support legislation that passed the "Jimmy Kimmel test" so that families who have children with serious health conditions, like his son, can still get care even if they aren't wealthy.

The late-night host did not stop there, also going after others that either told Kimmel to stay out of it or suggested he didn't understand the debate.

"Which part don't I understand?" he said. Is it the part where you cut $240 billion from federal health care assistance?

President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday became the latest voice to brand the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar as "genocide". The aid shipment was bound for the north of the Rakhine State where insurgent attacks on August 25 sparked a military backlash.

"Before you post a nasty Facebook message saying I'm politicizing my son's health problems, I want you to know that I am politicizing my son's health problems, because I have to", Kimmel said in his Tuesday night monologue. Maybe I don't understand the part of your bill in which federal funding disappears completely after 2026? This is partly what drives up the cost of health care and forces consumers to go to the insurance companies to pay for the care they need. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) of lying earlier this year when he promised not to back any healthcare bill that would eliminate affordable coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, Cassidy told CNN that the talk show host simply didn't understand the bill.

"Sadly, the bill he unveiled last week with Senator Lindsey Graham indicates that he was not honest", Kimmel added. The senator later introduced an Obamacare repeal bill with cosponsor Senator Lindsey Graham, that Kimmel, 49, did not approve of.

A short time later, Kimmel played a clip of "Fox and Friends" co-host Kilmeade slamming the late night host.

"The reason I found this comment to be particularly annoying is because this is a guy who, whenever I see him, kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman", Kimmel said. He calls my agent looking for projects.

Hollywood elite? Not quite, Kimmel said. The only reason he's not a member of the Hollywood elite is "cause nobody will hire him to be one".

"(Under the bill) it's fine to sell them coverage and insurance policies that don't cover open heart surgery, it's fine to sell them policies that don't cover pediatric office visits, it's fine to sell them policies that don't cover cardiac rehab, and it would be fine if a state elected such a waiver to charge that kid $10,000 a month in premiums", Pollitz said.
