According to Reuters, Senator Lindsey Graham (Rep, SC) reportedly said the Senate would vote on a new version of an Obamacare repeal & replace bill next week. Graham has co-sponsored a bill with Senator Bill Cassidy (Rep, La).
President Donald Trump endorsed the legislation on Twitter. But Republicans and the White House were on the defensive after Jimmy Kimmel used his late-night TV show to blast the proposal and call Republican Senator Bill Cassidy, one of its two sponsors, a liar.
“This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face,” Kimmel said on his show on Tuesday night, referring to the senator who since May had touted a “Jimmy Kimmel test” of standards any Obamacare replacement would need to possess.
