CNN Blames Christians for Obamacare Problems
Breitbart ^ | 11/08/2013 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 11/19/2013 2:36:45 PM PST by Carbonsteel

CNN has blamed Christians for the problem of Americans without health insurance, calling it "The Obamacare 'scandal' you haven't heard about." In an article on CNN.com's Belief Blog, CNN writer John Blake says that, while famous pastors "preach in states where crosses and church steeples dot the skyline," they do nothing about "the poor who can’t get the health insurance they would receive if they lived elsewhere."

And how many poor people do they help?

If they were to ask me, I can name about a dozen churches and ministries that help the poor where I live — and they help the whole person — not just fill their bellies and send them away.

Umm - CNN, those poor folks have to pay for it. Or fined if they don’t. Whether they can afford it or not.

Yes, it is the secular who are running the soup kitchens, thrift stores, shelters and rescue missions. Atheists are always the most altruistic.

Why can’t this simply be blamed in anybody that voted for it. Democrats.

what friggin country do these people live in?? If I was from another time and I teleported here, I would think that the US was a country rife with terminally ill people, their weakened bodies littering the streets and there was a political group trying to kill them off while another was out there like Florence Nightengales, tending to all the ill..

What about also offering those same poor people a job? I know of people who do that also so those same people can pay for their own healthcare. Working, if able, must always be part of the equation.

Catholic hospitals may have to close if their facilities are forced to be used for abortion purposes.

You said...
“The scam is falling apart and they’re grasping.”

A while back I posted as this unravels further, expect the excuses and blaming to become more and more desperate and outrageous.

This one is original. I’ll give the writer credit for that at least. Not that it will sell but at least the writer tried

From the article, “John Blake says that, while famous pastors “preach in states where crosses and church steeples dot the skyline,” they do nothing about “the poor who can’t get the health insurance they would receive if they lived elsewhere.”

As usual the arguments from the left make no sense. Insurance is and always has been an instrument to protect monetary assets. “The poor” have no need to protect their assets; they have no intention of ever paying their medical bills. Hospitals and doctors make little effort to collect the debts. What “the poor” care about is getting medical treatment. I have been working for a fire department for 25 years... no one is denied basic medical care based on their ability to pay.

We have one man in our community a long time alcoholic that ran up over $2,000,000 dollars in unpaid medical bills from ambulance companies, doctors and hospitals. He has never been denied medical care. It doesn't happen. Obamacare has nothing to do with guaranteeing health care to “the poor”. They are already guaranteed medical care.

“more and more desperate and outrageous”

They’re between that rock and a hard place. This scam has become personal for the only group they can count on fooling — the LIVs.

“We have one man in our community a long time alcoholic that ran up over $2,000,000 dollars in unpaid medical bills from ambulance companies, doctors and hospitals.”

This is one of the major things that’s driving up costs for the rest of us. I’m sure most of us have witnessed it.

I know a woman from south of the border, here legally, married to an Army officer.

But her father was sick with some type of stomach problem, so she invited him for an extended stay. While he was here, he went to the doctor, who admitted him to the hospital for nearly 2 weeks.

He then went back home without paying, never intended to pay.

They are in Satan's pocket. They need to read Revelation 19 to see which side they should be on. The End will not be pretty for the wicked.

Yeah, because I’m clothed in Christ’s righteousness, He intercedes for me, and I’m praying that it fails.
