It’s hard for me to be in America and not think about politics.
I love watching the news and hearing from the analysts.
This last week has been interesting – watching my facebook feed with Americans weighing in on the health care reforms that have just passed.
I’m certainly no expert, but I have read up a little. And although finding a perfect health care plan is impossible, my belief is that the reforms coming through “Obamacare” are moving us in the right direction.
As a Christian my primary concern is that we’re looking after those who are marginalized – those who have disease and disability, children, the elderly, the poor.
This imperfect plan (even by Obama’s admission) addresses all those those and more.
It’s a huge step in the right direction, starting from where we are right now.
Sincerely I try, but I just can’t understand the Republican/Democratic divide on this one. I really can’t.
I’m no Republican-hater, but my goodness, what’s the deal here folks? Are we disagreeing just because we’re “supposed” to be opposing? (Sometimes that’s what the debate feels like.)
From what I can tell the only ones who will really “suffer” from the impending changes are the insurance companies and pharmaceuticals. (But I make it no secret that I’m in favor of a more socialized health care system.)
And doesn’t the concept of helping “the least of these” seem like it will help build a better future for all of us?
And doesn’t it just seem like the right thing to do?
Q for you: Obamacare – what do you think? Do you get as annoyed that issues are always split down party lines as I do?
