Republican Congressman suggests poor people don't deserve healthcare for not leading 'good lives'A Republican congressman has suggested that poorer Americans do not deserve affordable healthcare because they have not led “good lives” and so bring it on themselves when they get sick. Alabama Representative Mo Brooks made the case for Obamacare to be repealed and replaced, as President Donald Trump hopes to do, in a CNN interview. Speaking about the proposed “Trumpcare” replacement, Mr Brooks said: “It will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher healthcare 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, they’ve done the things to keep their bodies healthy.
