Washington: President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act is currently failing and not doing what it’s supposed to, said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday.
He made this statement while responding to TV Host Jimmy Kimmel’s recent emotional plea for a healthcare reform.
Kimmel had revealed on his late night show that his newborn son had undergone an emergency surgery due to a heart defect, appealed for a nonpartisan healthcare reform in the country.
“If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it should not matter how much money you make,” The Hollywood Reporter quoted Kimmel as saying on his ABC late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Spicer said that the White House was concerned for Kimmel’s child as well as any child that needs care.
Maintaining that former President Barack Obama‘s Affordable Care Act was failing and not doing what it was supposed to, Spicer said that President Donald Trump wanted to improve the bill to make sure there was that extra layer of protection for anybody with a pre-existing condition, no matter their stage in life.
