GOP Lawmaker: Nobody Dies Because They Don't Have Access To Healthcare

“I do not believe health care is a basic human right.” - Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID)

Labrador, who represents Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, took questions for nearly three hours during a town hall at Meridian Middle School auditorium. It seats roughly 1,200 people and remained nearly full throughout the event. The town hall was the first event of its kind to be held this year among Idaho’s all-Republican congressional delegation.

“I do not believe health care is a basic human right,” Labrador said to jeers while answering a question about healthcare reform and increasing costs. “I just don’t think it’s a right to have healthcare.”
