Jimmy Kimmel Brings Son Billy Onstage For Emotional Monologue

Jimmy Kimmel returned to his late-night talk show Monday night with son Billy in tow to provide an update on his son’s health, and to once again call on Congress to fully fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).  Kimmel thanked the doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles before making an impassioned plea for healthcare. He slammed Congress for failing to approve new funding for CHIP.  Billy was born with a rare heart defect April 21 and underwent open heart surgery just days later.
