Time: D H M S

UPDATE: Jimmy Kimmel and his son have some things to get off their chest.

 

Hey, remember the clip above from back in early May?

And remember this from a week later?

Yeah, well, about that...

Opinion | On health care, Cassidy flunks his own 'Jimmy Kimmel test' https://t.co/ZvoxYSHMaJ

I had a few thoughts for Sen. Cassidy myself:

Hey @BillCassidy: You lied to @JimmyKimmel’s face on live national television, and he knows it. https://t.co/wx4BLkTu5N

You lied to the father of an infant with a heart defect…about protecting infants with heart defects. Remember this?? https://t.co/4mxFpOTZCt

…and remember this? https://t.co/BAWk5HR4JQ

Yeah, well, guess what? You lied through your teeth. For that matter, you also lied about how many kids are on CHIP https://t.co/IDs3WTELVZ

— ☪️ Charles Gaba ✡️ (@charles_gaba) September 18, 2017

Not only did you lie (nearly 9M children are on CHIP, but 36.8 MILLION ARE ON MEDICAID), but CHIP funding is ALSO about to run out.

AND Mitch McConnell even demanded that the CBO *PULL ANALYSTS OFF THE CHIP PROJECT* to squeeze thru #GrahamCassidy: https://t.co/bQTpiJ4Ogu

Here’s something you might remember from your medical school days, @BIllCassidypic.twitter.com/f6eb4KaYVU

YOUR BILL WOULD *DO HARM*, DR. CASSIDY. It would harm children. MILLIONS of children. (It would also harm millions of adults, too).

The #ACA *does* have problems…and yes, they’re real ones, needing more than “minor tweaks”…but it does NOT need to be SCRAPPED, dammit!

Take a look at what your REPUBLICAN colleagues have been doing with Dem counterparts over at the HELP hearings: CSR funding, reinsurance…

…and perhaps loosening up a few rules that DON’T weaken anyone’s coverage. Do those and you’ll be off to a great start.

I have a list of 20 improvements. Half of these are non-starters with you, I’m sure, but SERIOUSLY considerer them: https://t.co/zU3aYypbtI

Followed by this a few minutes ago...

Billy's helping me write tonight's monologue. I'll give our thoughts on the #GrahamCassidy health "care" bill. @BillCassidy @LindseyGrahamSC pic.twitter.com/IOmJ4am5D7

This ought to be...interesting.

UPDATE: Wow! They've actually already posted the monologue portion addressing Graham-Cassidy on YouTube a full hour before the show even airs!
