The Health Care Debate

I saw this video on the Today Show last week and it made me sad. I think it is really stupid that couples have to go through divorce just to get health care. How dumb is that?

I honestly don’t see how we as Christ-followers can see this happening and not think that something is wrong. Our health care system in this country is broken and needs to be fixed.

Then I saw this video on a friend’s blog and it got me thinking as well.

So people having to go through bankruptcy and divorce because of health care is a reasonable solution for everyone? If you answer yes to that question then I think our country is more screwed up then the health care system is.

I read in the Book of Acts that the church is supposed to be taking care of each others needs. Why aren’t we doing this in regards to health care? We shouldn’t need our federal government to have to come up with a solution to do this. the church should be doing it. But I also know that there was a guy named Jonah who wasn’t doing what God told him to do and so he spent some time in the belly of whale, because God was going to make sure that it got done. Maybe we need to have the same thing happen to us, because the church isn’t take care of each others needs.

All I know is that we need to do something because this is ridiculous. We claim to be the greatest nation on the planet and yet the number of uninsured or under-insured in this country is deplorable.
