This is an incredibly moving story that Jimmy Kimmel told on his show. His newborn son was born with a heart defect and needed immediate surgery. Kimmel could afford it, but he realized that many families could not. He made an emotional statement to his audience. He said this is not a partisan issue. We are all on the same team.
He ended with a plea for both sides of the aisle in the health-care debate. “If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make. I think that’s something now, whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, or something else, we all agree on that, right?” Kimmel said, as the audience applauded. “Whatever your party, whatever you believe, whoever you support, we need to make sure that people who are supposed to represent us — and people who are meeting about this right now in Washington — understand that very clearly. Let’s stop with the nonsense. This isn’t football, there are no teams. We are the team, it’s the United States. Don’t let their partisan squabbles divide us on something every decent person wants. We need to care of each other.”
