In May, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue as he revealed that his newborn son, Billy, was born with a heart defect that required immediate surgery. The operation was successful, but Kimmel was deeply shaken by the experience, which happened amid the debate over replacing the Affordable Care Act. Kimmel delivered a passionate plea about the astronomical costs of health care: “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.”
"Jimmy Kimmel Gets Heated About Health-Care Bill, Says Sen. Bill Cassidy 'Lied Right to My Face'" is from the September 20, 2017 Entertainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Emily Yahr and narrated by Sam Scholl.
