Jimmy Kimmel Praises Senators John McCain & Susan Collins For Essentially Killing The Graham-Cassidy Bill

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.

However, when he realized that Cassidy had lied to him, Kimmel dedicated

Senator Bill Cassidy Filmed YAWNING As Disabled Protesters Are Forcibly Removed From Hearing On GOP 'Health Care' Bill!

no title

Calling Lindsay Graham and Bill Cassidy's effort a "health care bill" is like referring to that dentist who shot Cecil the Lion as an "animal rights activist."

Sure, he was "active" in the realm of "animal rights" but mostly in removing all of them through murder. So it's really a misnomer.

Monday's Senate hearing on the removal-of-health-care-in-favor-of-tax-cuts bill (not succinct but at least accurate) was interrupted by protesters from ADAPT, a grassroots disability rights organization with a simple message about health care:

PLEASE DON'T KILL US!

Well, the Senate had one thing to say to their interruptions today: NOPE!

Watch as Senator Orrin Hatch has them forcibly removed from the proceedings:

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

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpJimmy KimmelHealthLate Night TV

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.

Be sure to watch Jimmy's takedown of Cassidy, Graham, Christie, and Kilmeade (above)!

Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Sen. Bill Cassidy For Lying About Obamacare Replacement Bill Passing The 'Jimmy Kimmel Test' — Watch!

Healthcare is a confusing topic… but someone's got to explain it.

That someone is Jimmy Kimmel, who called one senator a liar for claiming that he supported a health care bill that would actually guarantee coverage for all families.

On Tuesday, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host ripped on Sen. Bill Cassidy for lying about his new legislation passing the "Jimmy Kimmel Test."

The last time the GOP tried to get its "skinny" Obamacare replacement bill passed, Kimmel shared a gut-wrenching story about his newborn son Billy having to get emergency open heart surgery.

After the 49-year-old issued a plea for keeping health care available to people who can't afford it and those with pre-existing conditions, Cassidy assured Kimmel that any health legislation he drafted would have to pass the "Jimmy Kimmel Test."

But after reading up on the new legislation Cassidy co-authored with Sen. Lindsey Graham, Kimmel said the Louisiana Sen. "wasn't very honest" in keeping his promise!

Not only will the horrible new bill allow states to make people with pre-existing conditions pay even more, it threatens to take away insurance for
