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

Can't stop, won't stop.

GOP leaders are reported to be at the "evaluating options" stage right now, but critics of the bill are already thanking McCain for standing his moral ground — especially Jimmy Kimmel, who made his opposition no secret to late night audiences.

Read McCain's full statement (below) along with the love and respect he got from most of Twitter!
