Late night host Jimmy Kimmel pretty much led the lobbying effort against the latest version of the bill to repeal the health insurance law in the United States.
Last night he took a victory lap, declaring it dead.
“I haven’t been this happy about something being dead since [Osama] bin Laden,” Kimmel said, calling Tuesday “a day of great relief for many millions of Americans.”
It’s unlikely the effort to repeal health care coverage is actually dead.
