Is Mo Brooks a Lizard?

Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) appeared on CNN last night where he said he supports legislation that would allow insurers to charge sick people more money for coverage because those people haven't been leading good lives.

“My understanding is that it will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool that helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, they’re healthy, you know, they are doing the things to keep their bodies healthy,” he said. “And right now, those are the people who have done things the right way that are seeing their costs skyrocketing.”

There is no shortage of professional, championship-caliber athletes in the world who are more physically fit than every single person reading this, but many of them have also suffered from pre-existing conditions and illnesses of random chance that could strike anyone including Mo Brooks himself. But Mo Brooks, as a member of Congress, doesn't have to worry about the cost of his pre-existing conditions. He's automatically guaranteed healthcare for life.

    “Is Mo Brooks a Lizard?” In a word, yes.

    I am 74 years old, have never smoked, done drugs or drink any form of liquor more than two or three times a year. I have been an athlete my whole life and still exercise vigorously three to four times per week. I am probably way more fit than Mo Brooks. I was born with a congenitally deformed heart valve and in 2001 I had an artificial heart valve implant without which I would likely have died ten years ago. That’s my pre-existing condition. Mo Brooks you ignorant useless prick “GO FUCK YOURSELF”.

    I think it’s well past time we recognized sociopathy as a preexisting condition and kick this jagoff’s ass off his taxpayer funded insurance policy, toot sweet.

  • I had my first asthma attack when I’d been home from the hospital for three days. I wish I could remember those six days of life because I obviously spent them as a rat bastard who deserves to die. 😠

    “I hope you get cancer” is a mean thing to say, but… I hope Mr. Fit-and-Healthy Mo Brooks gets cancer, just so he can see how freakin’ random it is.

    What is WRONG with conservatives that they see everything as a morality play?

    • Draxiar

      When you see everything you do as morally justified then anything you say or do that is utterly despicable gets refocused through that lens of morality to make it acceptable.

    Right. But he deserves it, see. He isn’t poor. ::headdesk::
