Barack Obama responds to Jimmy Kimmel's tearful monologue about baby's health crisisFormer president Barack Obama has praised television host Jimmy Kimmel’s call to not let the partisan squabbles of politicians deny people access to health insurance. On his show, Mr Kimmel tearfully told the story of how his son received successful open heart surgery hours after he was born because of a congenital heart disease. After completing the monologue, Mr Kimmel noted that prior to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, there was a good chance that people who had a pre-existing condition like his son Billy would have not received health insurance coverage.
