As an avid bible reader I can assure Jesus didn't teach the government running your life, nor them being responsible for your well being. There's not a person alive who can't walk into an ER in this country and get health care right now. No where can you show me in the bible where Jesus advocated forcibly taking money from people to do his bidding. Your question assumes government run health care is our only option, and that's quite an ignorant assumption to make. You have a right to health care, but you don't have a right to go into my wallet to pay for it. God bless.
We all want universal coverage, but we need better than adequate care for all but good care for none. If our government run Medicare, and that's paid into, and Medicaid are going broke, how can we do it for all without rationing? And the ridiculous premise of taking money from Medicare and Medicaid to fund the public option would make Spocks brain explode. Does that mean the elderly and disabled would give up care for the more important tax-paying workers? Have you heard that Exekiel Emanuel's plan favors those between 15 and 40? He's Rahm's brother and a the chief advisor the the president. You must be careful. Anyone with a trace of humanity would favor children, but not this man. Think of being a young mother in a situation of shortage and you could get medicine while you watch your children die? Could life be crueler? If you don't believe me, research Ezekiels Emanuels Complete Lives theory, or it's called something like that. I think you will be horrified. And Jesus said that prayer would heal us, didn't he? And Christians are famous for their charity with the sick and the poor. We have Medicaid for the sick and the poor, so I wonder why so many think the sick are thrown into the streets as hospitals are bound by law to treat everyone. Look how much money hospitals spend in emergency rooms treating drunks, druggies and gun-shot victims, who ofter turn up the next month for the same thing, all for free. Think about it, you have left out the most salient facts.
