I find the opposition to Obamacare a gross, contradictory, and hypocritical position held by certain elected officials who represent the citizens of this great country.

I ask, how can a God-fearing nation allow large enterprises to make exorbitant profits from someone’s afflictions. Is it not the moral obligation of the citizenship to help, assist, and heal those citizens who suffer health issues? It is in the Bible — the principle source of our guiding principles!

How can we, in good conscience, allow health insurance companies to benefit when someone needs a kidney transplant, suffers a stroke, or needs insulin injections for the rest of their life.

We are a nation that is guided by Christian principles of kindness and caring more. To allow a segment of our society to continue to charge exorbitant, uncontrolled and unregulated charges for medical procedures is unconscionable.
