Kimmel wants free surgery

CBS News reports:
On Monday night Jimmy Kimmel held back tears as he told the story of his new son William's birth. ...

"Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you would never be able to get health insurance because you had a preexisting condition," Kimmel said.
That is not true. Under the old law, he could add a newborn child to his policy at birth, regardless of the health of the baby.

Apparently Kimmel's is that he wants to buy health for heart surgery after the baby's heart defect is diagnosed. He makes millions of dollars, and can easily afford to buy insurance for a new baby. But he wants to wait until he finds out that surgery is needed, and then get someone else to pay for the surgery.
"If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make," he said with tears in his eyes. "We need to make sure that the people who are supposed to represent us, the people who are meeting about this right now in Washington, understand that very clearly," he added.
They need to understand that millionaires should get free heart surgery for their uninsured babies?

I did not know that Kimmel was such a creep.
