Late-night host and unlikely voice of the health-care debate Jimmy Kimmel was quick to tweet his support for Republican Sen. Susan Collins (Maine) on Monday evening, following her announcement that she won't vote for the Graham-Cassidy health-care bill, the GOP's latest attempt to repeal ObamaCare.
"Thank you @SenatorCollins for putting people ahead of party," he tweeted. "We are all in your debt." Kimmel publicly entered the health-care debate earlier this year, after his son Billy was born with a heart condition and had to undergo emergency surgery when he was just three days old. Kimmel said he doesn't want anyone in the United States to worry about having to pay for life-saving care, and along with his wife, Molly McNearney, has tweeted his thanks to Republicans who have come out against the recent health-care bills — last week, after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced he wouldn't vote for Graham-Cassidy, McNearney tweeted a photo of Billy in a robe with boxing gloves and thanked McCain for "fighting for kids like me."
