Health Care Passes

The congress -- actually, only the Democrats in Congress -- have finally passed some form of health care reform. Already, the Republicans are massing to repeal it -- guess there just isn't enough profit in reform for their supporters.

During the vote, a representative yelled out "Baby Killer!". He now claims that he actually said, "Its a baby killer!", referring to the bill rather than the representative casting the winning vote. Which ever it was, this wholly in appropriate statement got to me. This representative probably calls himself a Christian, but to me he's not. He is a single-issue idiot who doesn't want abortion. He would rather that a child is born with problems because his mother can't get prenatal care. And after the child is born, will probably have additional problems because his parents can't afford pediatric care. His parents probably have low wage jobs, but what does this representative care because, the corporations which support him are making obscene profits because they have sent the parents' jobs overseas to people who earn even less than minimum wage.

Don't get me wrong, I do not believe in abortion as a means of birth control, but I have more concern for the poor than most congressmen who claim to be Christian. This representative will probably spout Bible passages to support his single-minded attitude. The one he should be spouting is, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'. [Matthew 25:40]
