Obama's Affordable Care Act is failing: White House

ET caught up with the 46-year-old actress at Hulu's upfronts presentation at La Sirena in New York City on Wednesday, where she opened up about the heartbreaking monologue Kimmel delivered on his show Monday night, revealing that his newborn son was born with a heart condition. "If your baby is going to die, and it doesn't have to, it should not matter how much money you make", said a teary Kimmel.

"We share that concern for the Kimmels' child, as well as any child that needs care". "That's frankly why the president fought so hard like he did this morning to improve the bill to sure there was an extra layer of protection for anybody with a pre-existing condition no matter their stage in life".

Spicer said that President Trump is "fighting for" the issues raised in Kimmel's dialogue.

Viviano told TIME that the GOP's health care bill, which passed in the House of Representatives on Thursday, pre-existing conditions may not be protected. "It was a success, and it was the longest three hours of my life".

Kimmel discussed his newborn son's open-heart surgery during his Monday monologue on ABC, saying that before ObamaCare his son would have been denied insurance on the grounds that he has a pre-existing condition.

Trump's Proposed Corporate Tax Cut: In Perspective
The percentage of the increase, the association noted, is more than half a percentage point below the 2 percent property tax cap. Still, the USA should be focusing on ways to boost business investment, which has fallen as a share of output in recent years.

"They did some magic that I couldn't even begin to explain", Kimmel explained.

The comments come as Republican leaders continue to push to repeal and replace Obamacare - also known as the Affordable Health Care Act.

Kimmel closed the monologue by praising the Affordable Care Act and calling on Americans to rise above party lines to protect access to health care in America. "I think that's something that, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on, right?" He was also asked about former President Barack Obama's response to Kimmel, which was that protecting the ACA for kids is "exactly why they fought for it".

"The need for sustained National Institutes of Health funding is vital to pediatric care because lifesaving techniques and therapies like those that helped Billy Kimmel are developed through federally funded research studies", he said.
