Jimmy Kimmel Defends Obamacare Monologue And Tears Critics Apart

By Mark Pygas

Last week, Jimmy Kimmel defended Obamacare on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live after revealing that his newborn son, Billy, was born with a heart disease that required open heart surgery. 

Kimmel pointed out that after the further surgeries his son will require, Billy would probably have exceeded his lifetime allowance and be uninsurable if it weren't for the Affordable Care Act, dubbed Obamacare. 

“We were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in  the world. But until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all,” he said in a powerful monologue.
