Back on TV, Kimmel zings critics of his health care plea

Back on TV, Kimmel zings critics of his health care plea

The ABC late-night host came back from paternity leave last week to share a heartbreaking 13-minute speech about his baby boy's dramatic birth.

"Say we've got to fulfill President Trump's contract, lowering premiums with coverage that passes the Jimmy Kimmel Test", the Lousiana Republican insisted. "He's sleeping well. He can read now, which they say is unusual".

He pointed to a New York Post article with the headline "Jimmy Kimmel's obscene lies about kids and medical care", as well as a Washington Times article titled "Shut up, Jimmy Kimmel, you elitist creep".

Prior to the show, Logic gifted Kimmel with an Everybody onesie for his new baby Billy, who recently underwent open heart surgery.

After that, he said, his "dream was to become an 'out of touch Hollywood elitist'".

In short, the list of things Trump supporters are totally freaking hunky dory with include: allowing veterinarians to perform surgery on uninsured Americans, "Uber EMTs", something called "repeal, rinse, and repeat", YouTube tutorial self-sutures, and poor people paying for their health care by donating an organ. "That was insensitive. It was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me".

Advanced voter turnout spikes in 2017 BC Election
The total turnout for six days of advance polls this year was about 614,000 out of a total of about 3,150,000 registered voters. When will voter turnout figures be available? That's a 70 per cent increase from advance voting in the past election, in 2013.

"The only problem is - that never, ever happens".

"We've had a dozen doctors appointments since our son had surgery", he continued.

You would think that saying that it's wrong for parents to have to decide whether or not they can afford to save their child's life would be something that no one with a human heart could argue against.

The host welled up last week as he described his newborn son's heart operation and made an emotional plea to United States president Donald Trump and his government, asking them to ensure that every parent is able to access life saving surgery regardless of whether they are rich or poor.

Kimmel said his statement was circumstantially factual.

"Those details, Newt forgot to mention", Kimmel added. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who was asked in a TV interview last week whether insurance companies should be able to cap payouts.

Caps stellar in win; force Game 7
Those Caps arrived home with all sorts of momentum and anticipation, and they were simply overwhelmed in a 6-2 Penguins victory. They willed in a goal in the second on the individual, playoff-defining effort of Andre Burakovsky , suddenly reborn.

"I don't even think that's a real newspaper, said Kimmel jokingly of the Times".

The double layers of Spanx are restricting the blood flow to his brain.

"Now, my first question is why are the vast majority of Republican politicians against making sure Americans are truly covered when it comes to health care?".

Kimmel also took some time to bite back at a few in the media who responded more negatively to his speech.

"Would the child born with a congenital heart disease be able to get everything she or he would need in that first year of life ... even if they go over a certain amount?"

"Thank you for naming a test after me", Kimmel told Cassidy in his introduction on Monday. "I knew we'd eventually pay the price for having a president as amusing as Obama, because someone dumb would think he was joking about something serious", he said.

I'll strain every nerve to the last minute to be a president for all the people", Moon, 64, said on the eve of the election. In March, Park Geun-hye became the first South Korean president to be removed from power by impeachment .

Kimmel told Cassidy that the best way to pay for the plan is "don't give a huge tax cut to millionaires like me".
