Jimmy Kimmel eviscerates Republican Senator who lied to him about healthcare

Jimmy Kimmel slams Republican senator over health care. Here's why

Christie Opposes GOP Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Lindsey Graham of SC said Vermont Independent Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana would repeal central elements of former President Barack Obama's health care law.

"We have no real competition", Portman says."We have 42 of our 88 counties only have one insurer now, which is not competition".

While GOP leadership is still short of the votes needed to pass the legislation - introduced last week by, Sens.

But activists who have opposed previous efforts to repeal so-called Obamacare dispute those numbers and fear how it will affect poor and working class people. "I believe that most Republicans like the idea of state-controlled health care, versus Washington, DC-controlled health care", Graham said Tuesday.

The presenter said it was therefore a surprise that the senator put his name to the Cassidy-Graham Bill, which was praised on Wednesday by Donald Trump as "great" and "an end to Obamacare".

The Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson (GCHJ) legislation was released one week ago by four Republican senators - Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy, Dean Heller, and Ron Johnson - and is likely the party's last-ditch repeal effort for now. "Going back to this Trumpcare 2, Graham-Cassidy, would shut down that bipartisanship that Americans yearns for". The window to pass it with a simple majority under Senate rules expires on September 30; Republicans have 52 members in the chamber.

This new data comes just a week after Sanders, supported by 16 Senate Democrats, introduced a bill that would guarantee healthcare for all Americans by expanding the Medicare program to every USA resident.

"I don't think states should have the authority to take money from the American taxpayer and set up a single-payer system", he said. But, he said, "I am politicizing my son's health problems because I have to".

The biggest reason is that the bill repeals Obamacare's expansion of Medicaid. Skeptics fear the formula used to distribute federal funds will have a negative impact on those that opted to expand Medicaid under Obamacare as they would receive significantly less under the policy.

Sen. Patty Murray is involved in that bipartisan effort as the top Democrat on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee. John McCain. Would he step back in line with fellow Republicans now that there was a bill co-written by Lindsey Graham of SC, his best friend in the Senate?
