I have been cyber-mugged on Facebook (well maybe I'm exaggerating but it felt that way) by two people asking if I have any heart. They want to know why Christians would be against health care for everyone. Instead of responding individually to them on this topic, I thought it worthy of an entire rant on Examiner. One of these comments was added to an anti-Obamacare post I had made on Facebook. The other just came out of the blue, but I suspect it had to do with earlier posts of mine dealing with Obamacare.
I can't believe I actually have to say this. It seems that both logical thinking and common sense are on the endangered species list. Just because I'm against Obamacare doesn't preclude the possibility that I would love to see all people have heath care and that I'd love to see our healthcare system improved. The Bible warns about us being judgmental. Those that love to ignore the other wisdom and commandments from the Bible use that "j" word to beat people over the head when they open their mouths on the topic of homosexuality or abortion as being sinful. Believe me, it takes absolutely no judgment to declare that God has said certain practices are an abomination to him. Those are interpreted facts, not judgment.
It's almost beyond belief that this bill, which apparently no one who voted for it has actually read, became the law of the land. There were other options (insert link) to take care of those without insurance without risking not only an industry and all the jobs associated with it but also our economy as a whole. And perhaps worse yet it potentially erodes freedoms in a few areas and will lead to an inferior health care system than we now enjoy.
First of all to improve medical care, we need to increase the number of health care providers. Next we need to reduce the costs of the health care. And perhaps most importantly we need to preach the mantra of the dentists. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Does Obamacare do any of these things? The answer is a resounding NO. Turning health insurance duties over to a government bureaucracy perhaps is the zenith of senselessness. Or perhaps that title is won by a group of bureaucrats in the FDA and other agencies who are trying to suppress the preventive cures of God's natural pharmacy (or perhaps better spelled farmacy). Some are finding that the Affordable Care Act is not so affordable after all.
