| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikJimmy KimmelJohn McCainLate Night TV

Can't stop, won't stop.

As you've probably heard, Jimmy Kimmel has been a vocal opponent to the GOP's (now practically dead) Graham-Cassidy health care bill. It all started when Senator Bill Cassidy promised the funny man that he'd fight for health care reform that would be available to those with preexisting conditions.

This meant the world to Jimmy as, following his newborn son's emergency open heart surgery, Kimmel realized his flesh-and-blood would've had a lifelong struggle with obtaining health care coverage if it weren't for his A-lister status.

Jimmy Kimmel SOUNDS OFF On The Graham-Cassidy Health Care Bill For A THIRD Time!

No one can silence Jimmy Kimmel!

As you've likely heard, the late night host has found himself smack dab in the middle of the American health care battle. It all started when the 49-year-old comedian opened up about his newborn son Billy's emergency open heart surgery. After the TV personality begged bigwigs in D.C. to keep health care available to those with preexisting conditions, Senator Bill Cassidy vowed he'd do just that.

However, the politician clearly lied about his promise as he's since co-authored legislation which will force patients with preexisting conditions to pay significantly more. Oh, and the legislation could take away insurance from 32 million people if passed.

Thus, Jimmy felt the need to call out Cassidy and Co. not once, not twice, but now THREE times. We knew the funny man would once again dedicate his monologue to the health care issue as Donald Trump has since weighed in on Graham-Cassidy bill.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out Jimmy's latest clap back (above).

Jimmy Kimmel GOES OFF On Senator Bill Cassidy & Co. For Downplaying His Health Care Bill Criticisms

Jimmy Kimmel isn't messing around when it comes to health care!!

This, of course, is bad news for Senator Bill Cassidy, whom the funny man has previously called out for lying about supporting a health care bill that would actually guarantee coverage for all families. In response to Tuesday's criticism, the senator said he was "sorry" Kimmel doesn't "understand" the situation.

Understandably, Cassidy's response infuriated the late night host and inspired him to rip into the politician and his peers — including Senator Lindsey Graham, Governor Chris Christie, and Fox News' Brian Kilmeade – during Wednesday's monologue. The 49-year-old comedian has been actively involved with health care reform ever since his newborn son Billy underwent emergency open heart surgery.
