Never cross a late-night television host.
That’s a lesson Sen. Bill Cassidy is learning after Jimmy Kimmel scorched his new health care bill on Kimmel’s program last night.
Why the high-profile feud? Kimmel is the eponym of Cassidy’s health care litmus test. Cassidy introduced the “Jimmy Kimmel test” after Kimmel shared the story of his own son’s congenital heart disease.
Kimmel tearfully told his audience his son was born with a congenital heart disease and had undergone open heart surgery that may not have been covered by insurance before Obamacare was enacted.
