Republican Feels Pre-Existing Conditions Happen to Bad People

That's Why They Should Pay More

At least one Republican has come clean about why Republicans want to charge huge insurance premiums for pre-existing conditions.  If you have pre-existing conditions you are a bad person and deserve everything you get, at least according to an Alabama congressman.

"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."

What a jerk!
