Two things happening here. One, the left and by extension the media, have overplayed the Jimmy Kimmel card (see Jimmy Kimmel Blasts the Bill Cassidy Health Care Bill and Jimmy Kimmel Tries to Stump Cruz on ObamaCare. He Loses). Two, Lindsey Graham replaced the milk in his Cheerios with Wild Turkey, because he was ready for a fight.
DEMOCRAT STENOGRAPHER POSING AS A NBC NEWS REPORTER: Do you think your health bill passes the Jimmy Kimmel test?
The Jimmy Kimmel test? Not a real thing. He’s a comedian repeating Democrat talking points.
GRAHAM: If you’re worried about health care for people, then you need to change where we’re going because ObamaCare is collapsing. What Mr. Kimmel described is ObamaCare.
Both Senators (Sen. Cassidy was rolling with him) got into specifics. I’d highly suggest watching the whole video for that.
But here’s my favorite part.
DEMOCRAT STENOGRAPHER POSING AS A NBC NEWS REPORTER: But states would be able to not cover people with preexisting conditions–
GRAHAM: That’s not true. Where are you getting this garbage? That’s complete garbage. This is a bunch of liberals who understand that state control of healthcare ends single payer.
Lindsey Graham just pantsed your entire argument. That’s what happened.
Lindsey Freaking Graham. Let that sink in. Also, since we’re talking about stupid arguments, read Enough Already! Covering Your ‘Pre-Existing Conditions’ Isn’t Health Insurance.
