Synopsis: God and Country Radio Program #75 – “ObamaCare Update” – April 7, 2013
Back in 2009, when the Affordable Care Act was debated, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi stated, “We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.” The ramifications of this massive legislation are just now starting to appear, and it doesn’t look good economically or morally. As predicted by economists, ObamaCare has caused insurance rates and medical costs to skyrocket. Morally, President Obama passed an executive order promising that the new health care program will not force the public to pay for abortions. Now in practice, businesses are now required to pay for their employees’ contraceptives and abortifacient drugs. At least fourteen faith-based companies have filed suit against the Department of Health and Human Services for violating their right to their free exercise of religion.
There is an unspoken reason behind the push for a national health care system. A recent CDC report stated that 110 million Americans have STDs. There are about 20 million new venereal infections in the United States each year. 1.2 million have HIV. Treatment drugs for HIV costs between $2,000-,5000/month, and it is estimated that every person diagnosed with HIV will incur medical costs of at least $500,000. Many of those with HIV are uninsured. Do the math! We have bankrupted the health care system because of our immorality, and those who live immorally would rather spread the cost and risk to everyone through a national health care system.
