    U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy is set to appear on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" after saying any GOP bill must pass what the Louisiana Republican calls "the Jimmy Kimmel test."

    In a news release Monday, Cassidy said that test "is to say a child born with congenital heart disease is guaranteed to get everything he or she needs in the first year of life."

    Last week, Kimmel delivered a tearful monologue describing his newborn son's life-saving heart surgery and saying lawmakers must help people afford health care. He said his son and other people with pre-existing conditions would struggle to get insurance under the plan passed by the House.

    Cassidy says he is working on a new bill that protects people with pre-existing conditions and reduces premiums.
