In the spring, Jimmy Kimmel made the case for the Affordable Care Act, detailing his son’s recent birth and heart surgery and urging Congress not to gut health care access. Kimmel's emotional monologue quickly went viral.
Now the late-night television host is in the spotlight again, this time weighing in on the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare replacement bill––named for Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA)––currently barreling through the Senate. The bill would strip the ACA's federal funding, and allow the states to run individual health care programs. It would also axe the "individual mandate" that requires people to buy insurance and roll back funding for Medicaid.
