Jimmy And Billy Kimmel Ask Congress To Fund Health Care For Kids After Second Surgery

By Mark Pygas

When Jimmy Kimmel's son Billy was born earlier this year, the comedian revealed that his newborn son was born with a heart disease that required open heart surgery just days after entering the world.  

At the time, the comedian slammed the Republican healthcare plan, which has since been shot down, pointing 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 (ACA), 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.
