Kimmel and Bits

This isn’t the first time the Senate GOP has raced to push an Obamacare replacement to a vote, but this time, they really do need to hurry. As of October 1, repealing the Affordable Care Act will take 60 votes. So it’s now or never. Vox got nine Senators to slow down long enough to try to explain what the proposed health law actually does.

+ Everything is political these days, so it somehow makes sense that Jimmy Kimmel has moved to the center of the health insurance debate. Here’s The Atlantic on the Anger of Jimmy Kimmel. “By the way, before you post a nasty Facebook message saying I’m politicizing my son’s health problems, I want you to know: I am politicizing my son’s health problems.” (When the moment called for it, Jimmy Kimmel became an activist. Let that be a lesson to you…)

+ WaPo: How well does Jimmy Kimmel understand the GOP health-care bill? (Not as well as top experts, but way too well to be a Senator.)
