Barack Obama responded to Jimmy Kimmel’s emotional speech about the ACA

Well this is touching.

After his incredibly moving opening monologue last night about his newborn son’s open heart surgery and his support for the Affordable Care Act, late night host Jimmy Kimmel got a tweet from the man who made it happen, former President Barack Obama.

In case you haven’t seen the monologue (and truly, it’s a must-watch), Kimmel reveals that his son was born with a heart defect that required emergency open heart surgery. After thanking the wonderful doctors and nurses who saved his son’s life, Kimmel talked to his audience about the incredible importance of the ACA.

“If your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to – it shouldn’t matter how much money you make,” the tearful host said. “I think that’s something that whether you’re a Republican or Democrat or something else, we all agree on that.”

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life…it just shouldn’t happen,” he pleaded.

Obama, seeing Kimmel’s impassioned speech (which, again is a must-watch), responded in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.

Like Kimmel said, let’s take care of each other.
