Democrats are using Jimmy Kimmel to target Republican lawmakers in 12 states

The new report is significant because Gov. Doug Ducey, who supports the Graham-Cassidy bill, has brushed aside other studies that also have shown significant losses in federal dollars.

The Senate needs to act by September 30 to use a fast-track procedure to keep Democrats from blocking the proposal by Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

Cassidy then said on CNN that Kimmel "does not understand" after the host said the senator's bill failed the test. A CBO estimate of a previous "skinny repeal" proposal projected that 15 million more people would be uninsured under that bill than under current law by 2026.

Obama called on supporters to push back against the new legislation.

No. The bill ends in 2020 the subsidies meant to reduce premiums for people earning up to 400 percent of the poverty level. Lindsey Graham was caught talking to a fellow senator on his cellphone about his health care bill, when he was actually being interviewed for the "Hannity" show.

Aside from how that might affect the approximately 80,000 Arizonans now getting care under a federally funded expanded Medicaid program, legislative budget staffers say the change in federal funding could trigger a "poison pill" provision in the 2012 law that levies an assessment on hospitals.

For moderates, the key is that the bill retains all of Obamacare's taxes, except the medical device tax, which leaves enough money available to repeal Obamacare's Medicaid expansion and replace it with a program with enough funding to protect health care for a state's poorest residents.

True: The money to states runs out in 2026.

"We have members whose governors are strongly in favor of the bill who would be in a tough position if they spoke out", he explained.

McCain downed the last version of the health-care bill in dramatic fashion, later saying on a Phoenix-based radio show that "Arizona was about to get screwed". However, not all states come out the same. McCain said on September 17: "What should take place is ... leaders, Republican and Democrat, and the president sit down and say, 'Okay, we've got a problem here". "Kansans can make their own decisions about health care; those decisions don't need to be in the hands of a faceless bureaucrat in Washington".

The bill contains "no apparent legal barriers to diverting funds to unrelated uses", they wrote.

Also, NAMD said, the bill's requirement that states implement the block grant component by January 1, 2020, is not realistic, and the "vast majority" of states would not be able to do so, given the complex nature of the task.

Because Jimmy Kimmel had a sick son, there is no reason at all to care about my friend, who, to avoid the fine for not having insurance, now has a health care insurance plan that literally no doctor in Georgia will accept.

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel excoriated the latest Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare, and Republican Senator Bill Cassidy, who co-authored Graham-Cassidy, the current health care repeal bill.

Specifically, the bill calls for federal block grants to be given to states annually to help people buy health coverage. But I know more than one forced to go on Obamacare and their experiences are far worse and more costly than what they had before Obamacare.

Once that time expires, it's not clear when Republicans in the Senate will have another opportunity to pass a bill with a bare majority.

Kimmel said this week he had felt Cassidy was being honest at the time, and sounded like a "rare, reasonable" Republican voice. That would likely destabilize the insurance markets.
