Jimmy Kimmel Delivers Tear-Filled Plea for Obamacare After Infant Son Nearly Dies

Jimmy Kimmel was crying before he even started talking.

I have a story to tell about something that happened to our family last week, the late-night host said at the top of his show Monday night. Before I go into it, I want you to know it has a happy ending. Its a good thing he said that because otherwise, this 13-minute monologue would have been even more unbearable to endure.

Kimmel went on to tell his audience and viewers that this past week, his wife gave birth to a baby boy named William John KimmelBilly for short. Everything seemed fine at first until a nurse noticed that his heart had a murmur and his coloring wasnt right.

A cardiac specialist rushed in and discovered that the baby had a dangerous heart condition and needed surgery right away. They brought him from Cedars-Sinai to Childrens Hospital in Los Angeles, where they successfully performed the first of several open-heart surgeries he will likely need over the next several years of his life.

As he told the story, thanking the doctors and nurses who diagnosed and treated his new son, along with the family members, coworkers, and friends who were there to support him, Kimmel regularly broke down in tears, struggling to get through the harrowing details.

Finally, after about 10 minutes, Kimmel decided he wanted to make a larger point about how the American health-care system works. He is among the wealthiest people in the country, able to afford any treatment his baby may have needed to survive. But he is aware that others are not so lucky and are forced to make horrible choices about how to proceed when they or their families need medical help. This was especially true before the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Kimmel pointed out that just last month, President Trump proposed a $6 billion cut in funding to the National Institutes of Health. And thank God our congressmen made a deal last night to not go along with that, he said. Instead, they increased funding by $2 billion. And I applaud them for doing that, he added.

We were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world, Kimmel continued. But until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. You know, before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease, like my son was, theres a good chance youd never be able to get health insurance, because you had a pre-existing condition. And if your parents didnt have insurance, he added, You may not even live long enough to get denied because of your pre-existing condition.

If your baby is going to die and it doesnt have to, it shouldnt matter how much money you make, Kimmel said, his voice breaking again. I think thats something that whether youre a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? His audience roared with approval.

Whatever party you belong to, Kimmel said, We need to make sure that the people who represent us, and people are meeting about this right now in Washington, understand that very clearly. Lets stop with the nonsense. This isnt football. There are no teams. We are the team. Its the United States. Dont let their partisan squabbles divide us on something every decent person wants.

We need to take care of each other, Kimmel said through tears. No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their childs life. It just shouldnt happen. Not here.

It was the most personal, moving, and convincing case yet made by a public figure for keeping the Affordable Care Act intact. And it will be hard to ignore.

Trumpcare Is Medical Apartheid

Jimmy Kimmel was weeping on his show this week. After describing the heroic efforts of doctors to fix the heart defect of his newborn son, Billy, he said that baby Billy would be dealing with this congenital condition when he was a teenager and beyond. Then his thoughts turned to people who are not the children of late-night talk-show hosts. He told the audience that important meetings are underway in Washington right now. No parent should have to decide if they can afford to save their childs life, he said to thunderous applause.

Before 2010, millions of parents were faced with just that decision. As we wait to see if Republicans can ram through their new version of the health care billand I give them decent odds in the Houseplease join me on a quick trip back in time on this most wrenching of issues. Itll help clarify the breathtaking cynicism of the GOP.

Im talking here less about President Donald Trump, who wouldnt know a community rating from a Nielsen rating if his life depended on it, than about other dishonest public servants who should know better, like House Speaker Paul Ryan, HHS Secretary Tom Price and Rep. Tom MacArthur, the New Jersey conservative who fashioned the latest compromise with the far-right Freedom Caucus.

Democrats are hardly covering themselves with glory on this one, either. Their efforts to defend Obamacare are often arid, abstract and disconnected from the powerful moral imperative at the heart of this issue.

First, the context. Lets return for a moment to the Great American Double-Whammythe way millions of Americans lost their health and their savings at the same time. Before Obamacare, more than half of all personal bankruptcies were caused by onerous health-care costs. Those who didnt go bankrupt often sold their homes or spent much of their net worth to pay for their care or that of an ailing loved one. It wasnt just cancer or heart disease that prevented people from getting insurance. High blood pressure, kidney stones, even allergies could be enough to deny you coverage. Then, if you got sick, you were thrown to the wolves. Its hard to believe we lived so long in that shameful world.

While we did, Democrats advocated some kind of national health insuranceat least catastrophic coverage. Republicans mostly opposed it, but they had to figure out some way to deal with the middle-class Billy Kimmels of the world.

So state policy-makers came up with something called high-risk pools, where insurers would all contribute to help cover their outcasts, the ones they didnt want wrecking their profits because of preexisting conditions. This sounded like a decent stop-gap idea and in the 1990s and 2000s it spread to 35 states.

Sadly, high-risk pools were a colossal flop. In 20 states, legislators provided no money to help with premiums for those in the pools. That meant few could afford the coverage. Only 226,000 out of 40 million uninsuredless than one percenttook part. In California, for instance, fewer than 1,000 people in the entire state were in the high-risk pools.

Now Trump, Ryan and company are pretending that these proven failuresstate-run high-risk poolsare the way to keep their promises to anyone who has ever had a chronic or serious health problem. The president says with a straight face that those with preexisting conditionsone quarter of all middle-age and older Americanswill be taken care of. The speaker put out a press release Tuesday saying it was a verified fact that the new compromise bill would cover them. His proof is the high-risk poolthe Health Insurance Risk Sharing Plan (HIRSP)in his home state of Wisconsin.

As Ryan brags, Wisconsinites enrolled in the high-risk pool were generally glad that they finally got covered after years of being stiffed for preexisting conditions. Problem solved! Thanks, Paul!

But it turns out that HIRSP coverage was inferior and more expensive than what these folks later obtained under Obamacare. Most important, the Wisconsin high-risk poolone of the best in the country and now the GOPs model for the nationinsured only 22,000 out of roughly 500,000 uninsured people in the Badger State.

In the face of this large and inconvenient fact, Ryan was shameless enough to get his picture taken on the Speakers Balcony with young women survivors of childhood cancer, implying that they wouldnt have anything to worry about under the new plan unveiled last week. In truth, should Ryan gets his way, these women are likely to be priced out of coverage for the rest of their lives if they happen to live in one of 20 or so states that would likely be granted waivers to let insurers avoid the community ratings that require them to treat all customers equally. Thats policy-speak for letting states and insurers kick these cancer survivors to the curb.

The speaker knows all this, which means that his intellectual dishonesty knows no depths. Any pundit who ever falls again for Ryans faux policy-wonk act should find another line of work.

And any Democrat who neglects the moral and ethical dimension of this issue should not seek reelection.

For years, Democrats have claimed that healthcare is a right, a notion I have generally embraced. But its a political right in a society that can afford it, not a moral right. There is no inalienable right to dental coverage.

The movement for ever-expanding rights is increasingly unpersuasive to many Americans when it is disconnected from wrongsfrom tangible signs of abuse and discrimination.

Pricing sick people out of insurance coverage is abuse. It will make them go to the doctor less often, meaning less early detection and more early death.

And discrimination against sick people is as morally wrong as discrimination against people because of the color of their skin. High-risk pools are American Sowetos in a system of medical apartheid.

If Democrats can make this about discrimination against millions of Americans, they will crystallize the issue and re-take the Congress in 2018.

The latest betting is that the new version of Trumpcarewhich would, like the old bill, throw 24 million Americans off health insurance will fall short. The old plan was supported by a paltry 17 percent of the public before it was withdrawn in March and this one is harsher and more hypocritical. Its especially hard on those age 40 to 65many of them Trump voterswho can now be charged premiums five times as high as those of younger people, instead of the three-to-one ratio in the earlier GOP bill. Were told none of this augers well for passage.

Im not so sure. The White House and GOP-controlled Congress desperately need a win to show the conservative base they can deliver. They also need the money saved from throwing millions off of coverage to help fund their tax cuts for the wealthy.

Few have noticed that the fate of tax reformthe only thing that unites the whole GOP is tied up with that of Trumpcare.

In the House, where the deal with the Freedom Caucus has given the bill new life, some moderates may now defect. But otherslike Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee and thus influential with colleagueshave moved from opposition back toward support.

Its widely assumed that the Senate wouldnt back the House version. But that hardly kills the bill. The momentum created by House passage might well force the Republican-controlled Senate to produce some kind of legislation. A handpicked House-Senate conference committee would then likely compromise on a final version that would, without question, be worse for those with preexisting conditions than the status quo.

According to his father, little Billy Kimmel looks like hes going to be OK. But the future of his health insurance is in doubt. The same goes for the rest of us who have faced health challenges at some point in our lives.
