“Jimmy Kimmel Makes Another Emotional Plea For Children’s Health Care”


“Jimmy Kimmel has issued another emotional plea for viewers to get involved in protecting affordable access to health care.

While holding his 7-month-old son Billy, who underwent a second heart surgery last week after being born with congenital heart disease, the late-night host discussed the Children’s Health Insurance Program(CHIP) on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night. The program is in jeopardy because Congress failed to secure funding in October. According to the Washington Post, CHIP provides low-cost health care to 9 million children across the country.” MORE
