Jimmy Kimmel: Sen. Cassidy 'Lied Right to My Face' on Healthcare

Wednesday, 20 September 2017 09:35 AM

Jimmy Kimmel says U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy "lied right to my face" by going back on his word to ensure any healthcare overhaul passes a test named for him.

Kimmel says a health care bill co-sponsored by the Louisiana Republican fails the "Jimmy Kimmel test," a phrase coined by Cassidy.

The late-night host announced in May that his baby son had surgery for a birth defect and argued that all American families should be able to get life-saving medical care. Cassidy told the host on his show that allowing insurers to cap the amount spent on an individual's healthcare was unnecessary.

Kimmel said during his Tuesday monologue Cassidy's most-recent proposal would leave the question of caps up to states.

Cassidy's spokesman didn't immediately return a request for comment Wednesday from The Associated Press.
