National Association of Evangelicals opposes Republican attempts to repeal Obamacare
The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), the main US umbrella group for 45,000 churches and millions of individuals, has surprisingly come out against Republican attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), known as 'Obamacare'.

According to the Think Progress website, a list of statements distributed yesterday by the faith-based anti-hunger group Bread for the World showed that the NAE spoke out against the latest effort to repeal the initiative.

'Despite its impressive achievements, our health care system often fails to deliver affordable, life-saving help to many of our citizens,' the NAE president Leith Anderson said in a statement. 'Reforms are needed, but they should be carefully studied and not rushed through Congress without expert analysis and thorough debate on the inevitable trade-offs inherent in any reform. Above all, any policy and funding changes should be ...

RICHARD FRANK, Professor of health economics at the Harvard Kennedy School — The evidence that exists suggests that in the near term, the individual health insurance market would experience further disruptions. The Congressional Budget Office estimates a reduction in the insured population by 4 million people in 2019, and 13 million by 2027. The CBO’s estimate of a 10 percent increase in premiums [if the mandate is repealed] is probably the best estimate of the immediate effect on premiums....

I mean, think about this — cut the effective corporate tax rate by 46 percent, to 21 percent from 35. And at the same time, 8.9 million American children who get coverage, medical coverage under the children’s health insurance plan go unfunded since September 30th because they can’t somehow, in their feverish pursuit of lowering the top tax rate from 39.6 percent down to 37 percent so Steve Schwarzman can somehow have an easier Christmas, they can’t find the money. These are working poor families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid and not enough to buy their own health insurance.

It is the caricature of the enforcement of the ugliest stereotype of the Republicans as an uncaring party passing a bill that was written by and for the richest and most powerful.

Here is who got the "sweetheart deal"

Been down this road before, from one of Jim's favorite magazines

"As you know if you’ve been reading this blog, Obamacare cuts $716 billion from Medicare in order to pay for its $1.9 trillion expansion of coverage to low-income Americans. It’s one of the reasons why seniors are more opposed to the new health law than any other age group. So why is it that the group that purports to speak for seniors, the American Association of Retired Persons, so strongly supports a law that most seniors oppose? According to an explosive new report from Sen. Jim DeMint (R., S.C.), it’s because those very same Medicare cuts will give the AARP a windfall of $1 billion in insurance profits, and preserve another $1.8 billion that AARP already generates from its business interests."

"As a lifelong Democrat if Obama gets the Democratic nomination for president and McCain gets the Republican nomination for president then I will be forced for the first time to support the Republican nominee for president because I would rather have a white Republican in the White House over a Black Democrat."
I became a registered Republican in 2008 because I was voting straight Republican for years anyway even though I was a registered Democrat. So I decided it was time to become a registered Republican.

Oh, you mean like Dr. Tim's? who apparently has some unusual hours himself, he can see I can respond at anytime of the day --or night, and I belong to AARP, that should answer his question.

I guess they are worth my membership fee.

No one should have to depend on the GOP healthcare plans which have all boil down to:

1. Don't get sick!
2. If you do get sick -- die quickly

Only countries that have incredibly ignorant and/or selfish leaders wouldn't recognize [URL=http://tinyurl.com/gtbv58h]]]http://tinyurl.com/gtbv58h (A Conservative Case for the Welfare State)[/URL] is an excellent idea.

No, Jim lives in the past, the glory days of his Caesar, the former president. Libs don't discuss, they move on to the next sidetrack. Have you noticed he doesn't post his infamous "Render to Caesar" link since Trump is now pres? I wonder why?

It would appear not, for JL is so focused on pushing the globalization plan of health care, which is an anti-christ agenda, that he cannot see the forest for the trees. There are tares among the wheat on these threads and will be until Christ returns. The elect of God aren't buying what JL is selling. Time is so short, instead of contemplating the brevity of earthly life, most spend what little time they have on the here and now, being consumed by politics and government control is evil[then trying to convince everyone that isn't what they are doing], for both politics and the government are evil. May God have mercy.

To see why, consider how we got where we are today. Twelve years ago, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation hired the Urban Institute, a center-left think tank, to figure out the best way to bring universal health coverage to Massachusetts. To the surprise of many, the think tank spoke highly of an idea popularized by the conservative Heritage Foundation: a requirement that individuals carry health insurance.

Republican Mitt Romney then seized upon the individual mandate, which had been the core of a [URL=https://tinyurl.com/829fgwk]]]previous national GOP proposal[/URL], and brought the left-leaning legislature around. And voila: Romneycare was born. Although some conservatives and libertarians objected, prominent Republican thought leaders had kind words for Romney’s policy experiment.

Then something unexpected happened. Barack Obama was elected president — and adopted Romneycare as his health care model. Suddenly the GOP had Romneycare nationally, but associated with a president of the opposite party.

Jim Lincoln, since you are so insistent that Uncle Sam should buy everything for everybody, I must ask you a question: Do you work, or do you sit on your duff like countless other "liberals" (meaning, of course, people who are liberal with everyone's money but their own) and let people who are NOT lazy bums support you?

If your January 2012 article is what most in Massachusetts think today, which is questionable, and being Massachusetts, we would have to say it's a matter of socialists liking socialism, Jim. Thought you knew that. But re-read US's post for your edification. And your quote from Bernie the Socialist is noted.
