Pre-Existing Condition Fan Mo Brooks Diagnosed With Cancer

I'm certainly not going to celebrate Mo Brooks' diagnosis because no one deserve to have cancer (except maybe Trump), but I am going to highlight the fact that Mo Brooks doesn't believe in protecting people with pre-existing conditions.

Brooks revealed this morning that he's been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but it wasn't very long ago that Brooks said people who "lead good lives" don't get cancer and shouldn't be forced to pay higher premiums to cover sick people.

Speaking with CNN's Jake Tapper about House plans to vote on a revised health insurance bill, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL, referenced people who lead "good lives" and said they should not have to pay as much as others.

"My understanding is that (the new proposal) will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool," Brooks said. "That helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, they're healthy, they've done the things to keep their bodies healthy. And right now, those are the people--who've done things the right way--that are seeing their costs skyrocketing."

Does this mean Mo Brooks has led a "bad life?" What did he do to keep his body healthy?

While the GOP's attempts to repeal Obamacare and its protections for people with pre-existing conditions failed, Brooks is expected to vote for the tax cut bill that will also repeal the individual mandate. Repealing the individual mandate will lead to higher premiums even for people who "lead good lives."

The good news for Brooks is that his health care is covered by the government and taxpayers even if he didn't lead a "good life." We should all be so lucky.

    I don’t wish him any harm, but he can’t successfully do the full-time job he was elected to so while getting cancer treatment, so he should step down. Since he is unable to complete the job that he committed to, he should not get lifetime healthcare people from the US taxpayer. If, in the mean time, Obamacare rules go away and he can’t find insurance, he will know that he made poor lifestyle choices, and go ahead and die peacefully without asking for a handout for him or his family.

    Despicable to place blame for ill health. Hope karma is in full force with this one.

  • Aynwrong

    Sorry Mo, but the sympathy reservoir is fresh out.

    Good.

    Yes it’s heartless. I don’t give a fuck. Unlike him, I can’t help take healthcare away from millions of Americans and I am not a racist asshole.

    He has continually tried to take healthcare away and has continually been a voice against people of colour and the needy.

    He doesn’t give a fuck about millions of Americans and has actively worked to worsen their lives.

    Burn in hell, Brooks. You worthless sack of shit. You deserve it.

      Looks like he’s getting some karma with his chemotherapy. Like you, I don’t give a fuck. He actively tried to take away benefits from millions of other people that are sick so screw him. I’ll rescind this sentiment when and if he has an Ebenezer Scrooge moment but until then he can piss right the hell off.

      Not going to blame you for saying this–it’s also what others are feeling too, myself included.

    I have it from a reliable source that Mo was a serial masterbater in the congressional men’s room using pictures of several female aides for stimulus and that led to his prostate issues.

    Sorry, that’s in bad taste,but I just couldn’t help myself.

    Wait till he gets a load of the bills that will come in, even with good insurance. Copays, coinsurance, deductibles, have fun there, Mo! I have really good insurance and it still cost me $3K out of pocket to get rid of my sciatica. Cancer is even more expensive than back operations.

  • One has to wonder if any of these hypocritical asshats have lived a single day in the real world.

      They haven’t. Not a one of them.

      • Brooks is about to get a dose of reality. Even successful cancer treatments are nightmares.

    I wish Mo Brooks successful treatment, a speedy recovery, and a long and healthy life.

    Far, far away from government, politics and the public eye.

        Mo Brooks is pretty much a waste of carbon, true, but maybe he’ll learn something from this experience and become slightly less useless. *crosses fingers*
