Jimmy Kimmel Grateful Health Care Bill is Dead


THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON A DAY OF GREAT RELIEF FOR MANY MILLION OF AMERICANS. BECAUSE THE GRAHAM/CASSIDY HEALTH CARE BILL, A BILL I’VE BEEN SPEAKING OUT AGAINST ALL WEEK, IT SHALL NOT PASS. SENATOR McCONNELL DECIDED TO PULL THE VOTE. THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE VOTES. I HAVEN’T BEEN THIS EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING BEING DEAD SINCE BIN LADEN. ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY, ESPECIALLY MY SON BILLY, I WANT TO SINCERELY THANK THOSE OF YOU WHO CALLED YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND MADE YOUR VOICES HEARD. I BET THE WALLS IN THE OVAL OFFICE ARE FILLED WITH DOZENS OF TINY LITTLE FIST HOLES TODAY. REPUBLICAN SENATOR SUES AN COLLINS AND JOHN McCAIN STOOD UP AGAINST GRAHAM/CASSIDY. THEY BROKE WITH THEIR PARTY AND THE PRESIDENT WILL THE GOOD SENSE LAST NIGHT TO LASH OUT AGAINST JOHN McCAIN ON TWITTER. HE POSTED A VIDEO. HE WROTE A FEW OF THE MANY CLIPS OF JOHN McCAIN TALKING ABOUT REPEALING AND REPLACING O’CARE. MY OH MY HAS HE CHANGED. HE’S SO MAD HE’S TURNED INTO SCARLET O’HARA. AND McCAIN DIDN’T EVEN FLIP-FLOP. HE’S STILL IN FAVOR OF REPLACING. AND THE IDEA THAT DONALD TRUMP WOULD CRITICIZE ANYONE FOR CHANGING HIS POSITION IS VERY RICH. DEFINITELY RICHER THAN HE IS. DONALD TRUMP HAS MORE FLIP-FLOPS THAN A JIMMY BUFFETT CONCERT. NO ONE CONTRADICTS HIMSELF MORE. NO ONE EVER IN HISTORY. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I WILL SAY THIS. SINCE HE WAS SO KEEN ON SHINING THAT LIGHT ON JOHN McCAIN, WE PUT TOGETHER A COLLECTION OF SOME OF THE BIGLIEST ABOUT FACES OF DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF.>>BILL CLINTON WAS A GREAT PRESIDENT. HILLARY CLINTON IS A GREAT WOULD THAT AND A GOOD WOMAN.>>IN MANY WAYS I IDENTIFY MORE AS A DEMOCRAT.>>I AM VERY PRO-CHOICE.>>I WON’T HAVE TIME TO PLAY GOLF.>>I’M GOING TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYBODY. I DON’T CARE IF IT COSTS ME VOTES OR NOT. IT SEALS LIKE THEY DO BETTER.>>I HATE THE CONCEPT OF DIVORCE. I WOULD NEVER LIE.>>COULD YOU SAY — >>I WOULD NOT LIE. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT LIE. IF I DECIDE TO RUN FOR OFFICE, I’LL PRODUCE MY TAX RETURNS. ABSOLUTELY.>>Jimmy: HIS MEMORY IS SHORTER THAN HIS FINGER. SO HE HAD DINNER WITH A BUNCH OF CONSERVATIVE LEADERS AT WHICH HE CALLED JOHN McCAIN A DISGRACE, WHICH THAT IN ITSELF IS DISGRACEFUL. JOHN McCAIN IS HOME FIGHTING BRAIN CANCER RIGHT NOW. WHAT IS YOUR BRAIN’S EXCUSE? AND THE SAME WAY TRUMP IS TELLING THE NFL WOULD BE MORE PATRIOTIC, HE IS INSULTING A MAN WITH A PURPLE HEART. JOHN McCAIN WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG MAN, HE WENT TO VIET NATURAL. HE WAS BEATEN VICIOUSLY. HE WAS A PRISONER OF WAR FOR FIVE AND A HALF YEARS. THEY OFFERED TO RELEASE HIM AND HE SAID NO. HE REFUSED TO LEAVE HIS FELLOW SOLDIERS BEHIND SO HE STAYED THERE VOLUNTARILY. DONALD TRUMP GOT OUT OF EVEN GOING TO VIETNAM BECAUSE HE HAD A BONE SPUR. HE GOT A DEFERMENT FROM DR. SCHOLL’S OF IF THAT DOESN’T PAINT A PICTURE FOR YOU, MAYBE THIS WILL. THIS IS McCAIN AFTER HE WAS RELEASED BY THE VIETNAMESE.>>JOHN McCAIN SEEN HERE EXITING A BUS IN HANOY, VIET NAP.>>HERE’S DONALD TRUMP GETTING OFF A BUS.>>2005, DONALD TRUMP SEEN HERE EXITING A BUS IN BURBANK, CALIFORNIA.>>HELLO, HOW ARE YOU, FINE. NICE SEEING YOU. TERRIFIC. YOU KNOW BILLY BUSH.>>EACH MAN DISPLAYS HIS HEROISM IN HIS OWN PERSONAL WAY. SO GOOD FOR JOHN McCAIN FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING AGAIN. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] SUSAN COLLINS, WHILE I’M RELIEVED THAT WE DODGED THIS PARTICULAR BULLET, HEALTH CARE, WE NEED A SYSTEM THAT PROVIDES QUALITY AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE TO EVERY AMERICAN. OBAMACARE IS A START BUT IT IS OBVIOUSLY FAR FROM PERFECT. AND LET’S NOT FORGET, THE REASON IT IS FAR FROM PERFECT IS FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS, THE GOP LEADERSHIP REFUSED TO WORK WITH DEMOCRATS TO FIX IT. THEY VOTED SIX TIMES CAN I IT. NOT EVEN COUNTING THE VOTES THIS YEAR. THEY TRIED 50 MORE TIMES TO CRIPPLE IT OR TO REMOVE IMPORTANT PROVISIONS AND THEY KEPT SAYING REPEAL AND REPLACE. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THEY DIDN’T HAVE A REPLACEMENT THAT OFFERED ANYTHING LIKE WHAT WE HAVE NOW. SOME REPUBLICANS SAYING THEY’LL TAKE ANOTHER SHOT AT IT NEXT YEAR, EVEN THOUGH ONLY 24% OF AMERICANS APPROVED OF GRAHAM/CASSIDY AND ONLY 20% APPROVED OF THE LAST ONE. I’M NOT A CONGRESSMAN. I DON’T WANT TO TELL YOU HOW TO DO YOUR JOBS. BUT HERE’S HOW TO DO YOUR JOBS, OKAY? INSTEAD OF WRITING A BILL BY CANDLELIGHT ON A BAZOOKA WRAPPER AND THEN LYING ABOUT WHAT IT WILL DO, TRY THIS. HOLD A BUNK OF HEARINGS. AT THOSE HEARINGS, INVITE EXPERTS, DOCTORS, PATIENTS, HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATORS, INSURANCE PEOPLE, INVITE THEY WILL ALL, FIND OUT WHAT’S WORKING, AND THEN WRITE A BILL BASED ON ALL THE STUFF YOU FOUND OUT FROM THEY WILL. I KNOW IT SOUNDS CRAZY BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO THINK INSIDE THE BOX. OKAY? [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO TELL OUR REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS TO GET TOGETHER WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES, SENATOR LAMAR ALEXANDER OF TENNESSEE WAS ALREADY DOING THIS WITH PATTY MURRAY OF WASHINGTON TO WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE A FLAWED SYSTEM INTO A GREAT SYSTEM. AND PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU MADE A DEAL WITH SCHUMER AND PELOSI, AND YOU GOT GREAT PRESS FOR THAT. DO THAT AGAIN. YOU CAN CALL IT TRUMP IS AWESOME CARE. WE DON’T CARE. WE’LL PUT YOUR MASKS IN THE OPERATING ROOM SO PEOPLE CAN SEE AND YOU THANK YOU JUST BEFORE THEY GO UNDER. THIS ISN’T ABOUT SIDES. IT IS ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK. TO ALL THE SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES WHO STOPPED THIS BILL, THANK YOU FOR BEING REASONABLE AND KNOW — [ APPLAUSE ] THAT WE’RE PAYING ATTENTION AND YOU’LL BE HEARING FROM US AGAIN. IF EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN SO PASSIONATE ABOUT HEALTH CARE COULD BE JUST AS LOUD AND ENGAGED ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE IN PUERTO RICO, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THE AMERICAN RED CROSS WHICH IS RIGHT THERE.

  1. I thought the government was set in place to help everyone yet we live I fear of the very people we put in office. The people meant to protect and serve instead oppress. This is like a Stockholm hostage relationship… This can not last.

  2. Kiefer Sutherland's grandfather brought single payer health care to Canada. He was the leader of the NDP. Tom Douglas I believe.

  3. Why not just create a healthcare tax based on those incomes that can afford to pay. Then create a national insurance corporation. In Canada we call them Crown Corporations. I'm not sure what they are called in the U.S.

  4. I know this is stupid to write in a comment section, but I just don't get why 362 (now) people would bother to come to this video, and then go thumbs down. Why bother? Flame on.

  5. Sad thing is so many people don't care till its their own family that gets effected! Republicans don't care and never have about health care! They are selling a lie, penning poor people against poor people! Quess what, everyone is born with pre-existing conditions, everyone has heart conditions or sugar or cancer or some form of ailment in their own families! Everyone has a pre-existing condition of death! The idea that someone is so healthy is a illusion, as some point everyone goes to a doctor or emergency room! We should all have a right to live and be health as possible! So think about each other, you never know when someone will happen to you or your loved one's! Bless you Jimmy and your family!

  6. Thank you Jimmy for leading the fight and many best wishes for your son's full recovery. Please continue to push for full health coverage for all at an affordable cost……the insurance companies must not be allowed to make massive profits on people's misfortune when they get ill.

  7. Its a shame Jimmy Kimmel and the media in general are so focused on the government writing blank checks to Big Pharma and Big Medicine. Instead of focusing on just how bad these groups are ripping off the American people with the help of corrupt politicians . Republicans and Democrats. Who allow these people to charge 100 times what they charge in other countries. The faux argument about Obama Care is nothing but a distraction from making the real changes needed. Obama Care just like the failed model before is here for a while. Why….because Big Money is making Big Money and no politician is going to bite the hand that feeds them.

  8. It's amazing there's only 3 GOP Senators that rejected the Heath Care bill. Those who support it care more about their donors than constituents. If they cared about their constituents, they would have tried to create a health care bill that people actually like. Basically they promised the people a unicorn, found out it's impossible to do, offered them a dead donkey instead.

  9. Trump is such a f—— liar. Please, please, please take this crazy senile man out of the white house. Per Kimmel's opening Put Trump's face on surgeon's masks.
    Better yet, don't put Trump's face on operating mask. Only people going under for surgery will see it, but if you put Trump's face on toilet paper, then everyone will see it. Some more than once a day too!!!

  10. In all honesty, this is why a lawyer is a better idea than a reality tv star for the white house. I am almost certain Obama took the time to read through the health care bill he got through. Donald Trump probably didn't look at it. I try not to pay attention to politics too much, but at least Obama was heading in the right direction. The amount of lies coming from the other side about healthcare is pretty astonishing. The people drafting these healthcare bills are in the pocket of somebody. They tried to pull a heist on the American people and it didn't work, okay now go back to getting nothing done.

  11. Hooray for all socially responsible Americans! God bless you all! All the rest may your influence soon be reduced to zero!

  12. Jimmy your voice is needed for the duration of the Trump administration. Please continue to educate the American people. Thanks

  13. Thank you Jimmy for standing up for us. I had completely abandoned late night TV until you did this. Now I am a fan!!  Our government is owned by the big banks and insurance industries and it is good to see someone like you use your celebrity to bring attention to this important issue and call the liars who are in our governments out about it! Way to go! You have a supporter here! And best wishes and prayers for your son's continued recovery to a happy and fulfilling life!

  14. You are only thankful that its dead because because you celebs rely on liberalism to keep your show on the air. Hey Jimmy how about you pay my individual mandate penalty this year, and reimburse me the $700 i paid last year, Or you could pay the $250 a month insurance im suppose to pay only making 23k a year. You are an idiot! But wait, i could just stop working and get it free. Is that really what you stand for jimmy. You are a dumbass sir.

  15. Jimmy getting advise from Chuck Schumer who won't commit to healthcare for all in the U.S. is just rich. ABC/Disney donates to politicians on both sides including Schumer but not to Trump. I guess Trump isn't on their dance card so it's open season.

  16. Follow the money too much money in squeezing sick people for politicians not being funded by the medical profiteers

  17. Is Healthcare a right? Asks high school student in Wisconsin…
    “I think it’s probably more of a privilege.” Senator Ron Johnson and Tea Party reformer. I ask on who’s welfare do you plan to remake America into you’r utopian vision, Senator Johnson

  18. Never take your political cues from a man who was dumb enough to date Sarah Silverman. If you do so, you probably shouldn't trust yourself when it comes to making adult decisions and conclusions about the political issues of our time. He uses nothing but emotional pleas and rhetoric whenever he injects politics into his show. He is wrong about everything. Go on youtube and search "Jimmy Kimmel Ben Shapiro" and see how Shapiro easily refutes Kimmel.

  19. When Jimmy said that there must be little fist sized holes in the White House today, I suddenly thought of a Blonde Chucky the killer doll with his trademark annoyed smirk punching the walls while throwing tantrums… the resemblance is uncanny, only the one with the smaller fist is more malevolent… I leave you to deduce who it should be between the two…

  20. Jimmy Kimmel for president! Or something he likes! He's funny, smart and with a great heart. (Don't like my comment! Help me meet him!) 😊😊

  21. Of course they can't come up with a viable replacement. Obamacare as it is now is already a right-wing capitalist's wet dream. Insurance companies profit on something we're mandated to pay for? Then those profits go into campaign funds. Why would they ruin a good thing they've got going?

  22. the U.S. needs to adopt the same style of health care as Canada. it's not perfect I'll be the first to say but it's free to everyone.

  23. I am not a vindictive person & I believe in karma, but the thought of Trump (I refuse to call him the president) taking my health insurance away, makes me feel like I want to put a bomb under his car!!! Besides, how am I supposed to return to being a productive member of society, if I can't take care of my health problems!

  24. Still a great work of truth from Jimmy K.
    Very relevant even today as the list of tRumpian flip flops are classic!
    I wouldn't be surprised if someday the dictionary shows the words trump and lies as synonymous.
