Obama asks Religious leaders to preach health care reform
With approval ratings plummeting and support for the new health care law waning, the president is scrambling for ways to sell his health care overhaul. Possibly looking for a miracle, he‚Äôs turning to church leaders who preach about such events to deliver one.
‚ÄúObama, alongside other top administration officials, beseeched thousands of faith-based and community organizations to preach the gospel on new insurance reforms, chiefly the Patients‚Äô Bill of Rights.‚ÄĚ That‚Äôs how Politico describes a conference call that featured the president on Tuesday.
‚ÄúGet out there and spread the word,‚ÄĚ the president encouraged religious leaders on the call. Politico reports that Obama also advised those listening to treat the new law as settled fact and use their perches of power to convey that message to congregants and friends....

Isn't this the old christian-socialist ideology which we would expect from the Liberals and Democrats anyway.
Quote::- "Christian socialism generally refers to those on the Christian left whose politics are both Christian and socialist and who see these two philosophies as being interrelated. This category can include Liberation theology and the doctrine of the social gospel. The term "Christian Socialism" is used in this sense by organizations such as the Christian Socialist Movement (CSM)."
The christian-socialist movement was supposed to have died out in the USA in the 1920's. Still in Europe though!
Well, he asked ... this universal health care push is an attempt to switch Americans from traditional insurance to catastrophic policies. Everyone will have health insurance, but no one will be able to afford health care. At some point, people will wake up to what is going on, but by then traditional insurance will no longer be available. People will see that the high deductibles are just high enough that they won't cover most expenses, and their HSA accounts have an artificially low cap on contributions which makes them useless. Insurance premiums will continue to rise, and Americans will eventually figure out they've been scammed. Well, that probably isn't what he meant, but the truth needs to be told.
