Jimmy Kimmel Brings Infant Son Onstage to Call for Health Care Reform

Jimmy Kimmel shows emotional side while asking the Congress for the kid healthcare

Kimmel thanked the guest hosts who filled in for him last week while he took time off to care for Billy.

LOS ANGELES-Jimmy Kimmel held his baby son as he returned to his late-night show after a week off for the boy's heart surgery.

"It covers around 9 million American kids whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but don't have access to affordable coverage through their jobs, which means it nearly certainly covers children you know".

Billy Kimmel is officially one heart surgery away from a clean bill of health!

Although Billy isn't in the clear just yet, Kimmel revealed that he is recovering better than expected. "I don't know what could be more disgusting than putting a tax cut that mostly goes to the rich ahead of the lives of children".

Jimmy - who has kids Katie, 26, and Kevin, 24, with former wife Gina, and three-year-old Jane with wife Molly McNearney - also paid tribute to the "very bright and talented" doctors and nurses who cared for Billy in hospital, and told viewers about a health insurance programme.

The S&P 500 posted 41 new 52-week highs and 1 new low; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 51 new highs and 42 new lows. Traders see an 87.6-percent chance of a 25-basis-point rate hike, according to the CME Group's Fedwatch tool.

Kimmel said CHIP is "not a partisan thing", noting that Democrats and Republicans "overwhelmingly" supported it until now. "It's on the back burner while they work out the new tax plans". He was one more surgery. It's called CHIP [Children's Health Insurance Program],' he explained. And it's true: Billy, an A+ co-host was preternaturally calm and had great stage presence.

Giving a brief history of the program, the 50-year-old continued, "Parents of children with cancer, diabetes and heart problems are about to get letters saying their coverage could be cut off next month".

"They say he's probably on track to win at least a bronze medal in the Olympics in 2036", he quipped.

"This is literally a life-and-death program for American kids", he added.

'I'm grateful for them for doing that, ' Jimmy said. It's always had bipartisan support.
