Senator John McCain’s puppet boy, Little Lindsey Graham, got his panties in a bunch yesterday when a reporter asked Senator Bill Cassidy about Jimmy Kimmel saying that he”lied to his face” about what he wanted in his health care bill, and that the Graham-Cassidy zombie “Trumpcare” bill fails the “Cassidy Test” (aka “Kimmel Test”).
“I do declare! How dare he impugn the honor of Senator Cassidy. He has offended my genteel Southern sensibilities. Hand me my dueling glove so I can challenge this scalawag to a duel!”
Even our Twitter-troll-in-chief took to Twitter to say Senator Cassidy “does not lie.” When the world’s biggest liar is your character witness as to your veracity, you have a serious credibility problem.
Caitlin Owens of Axiox.com reports, Repeal first, ask questions later: “If there was an oral exam on the contents of the proposal, graded on a generous curve, only two Republicans could pass it. And one of them isn’t Lindsey Graham,” a senior GOP aide told Caitlin.
So Little Lindsey Graham either doesn’t know what his bill will actually do, or he and Senator Cassidy are the lying sacks of shit that Jimmy Kimmel says they are. The fact checkers are going with the later. You want to duel you cracker, let’s duel!
ABC News reports Fact check: Sen. Bill Cassidy on his health care bill assertions:
Below are four statements by Cassidy about the legislation and our analyses of them, based on conversations with health care experts.
Statement: “There will be more folks covered under this bill than the status quo, and it protects people with pre-existing conditions.” — ABC News interview
Fact check: The Graham-Cassidy bill would scrap the individual mandate requiring people to buy health insurance — the crux of Obamacare, anathema to its opponents — meaning people would no longer be penalized for not having insurance.
James Capretta, a fellow with the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute, told ABC News that the absence of the individual mandate means it would be “highly, highly unlikely” more people would be covered under Graham-Cassidy than under current law.
