and so it begins...?

"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It's very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. . . . Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it." - Ronald Reagan

I've got to steal this!! I'm sure you wouldn't mind if I spread this far and wide...!!!

The Pelosi/ Obama bill is indeed the beginning of the destruction of our nation as we know it. I am sickened by this entire administration and ask God to do whatever is necessary to change Obama's heart.

We will miss your everyday blogging!!

My heart breaks seeing the direction
this country is going. I know God's
heart is breaking even more. As this
country continues to turn away from

"If My people who are called by My
name will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven, and will forgive their
sin and heal their land."
2 Chronicles 7:14

I thought GOD would want socialized medicine since He heals people for free, not charging a co-pay. I am afraid I will have to respectfully disagree with you all. I believe people's health should not be a commodity that can be bought and sold. Having lived under a socialized medicine system myself for a number of years, I will have to say it could be a very good thing if it is managed well. I have great health care plan through my employer, so for selfish reasons, I don’t want to see any changes to my health care. However, I can’t forget the desperation of the parents of the kids from low income families I met when I was volunteering. One can’t help but wondering, how can we as a civilized society leave them behind, and at the same time, countries like Cuba can offer their citizens free access to health care.

With all due respect, we live in America, which is a democracy...and the majority of Americans do not want socialized medicine.

We already have a plan in place (Medicaid) for those who don't have insurance.

And no, God does is not pro big- government. Though He certainly wants those who can't take care of themselves to be taken care of, He also states that if you don't work, you don't eat. I think that would also apply to paying for your own healthcare.

Having said all that, I do believe the Church should do a better job of caring for those who truly need help. Perhaps then we would have no need at all for our taxes to pay for anyone's health care.
