GOP Senator: People with Pre-existing Conditions Deserve High Premiums

Senator Ron Johnson had an interview on ‘Meet the Press’ recently and we wish we were surprised by the ignorant thoughts spewing from his mouth. Johnson suggested that people with pre-existing conditions deserve to pay more because they are like cars that had been in an accident.

When Chuck Todd said that Republicans could not say for certain why insurance companies were abandoning some markets, Johnson simply said “nobody wants to talk about it.”

He went on to say, “We know why those premiums doubled, we’ve done something with our health care system that you would never think about doing, for example, with auto insurance, where you would require auto insurance companies to sell a policy to somebody after they crash their car.” Is this guy for real?
