Monday provided two stark, contrasting headlines.
The first came from late night host Jimmy Kimmel. He explained to his audience, in heartbreaking fashion, that his son had been diagnosed shortly after birth with tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia, a dangerous heart condition requiring immediate surgery, which was successful. He then added, “You know, before 2014 [and Obamacare], if you were born with a congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you wouldn’t be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. 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 that whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right?”
