Kimmel delivered a heartfelt monologue on the importance of affordable healthcare

On his Monday night show, Kimmel delivered a heartfelt monologue on the importance of affordable healthcare, especially for people with pre-existing conditions. He told the audience that his son was born last week with a heart defect. The doctors performed surgery and the operation was successful.

“Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition,” Kimmel said.

“You were born with a pre-existing condition. And if your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not live long enough to even get denied because of a pre-existing condition. If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make. I think that’s something that, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right?”
