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.
