Health Care

WASHINGTON -- Repeatedly invoking the Bible, President Obama yesterday told religious leaders that health-care critics are "bearing false witness" against his plan.

The fire-and-brimstone president declared holy war in a telephone call with thousands of religious leaders around the country as he sought to breathe life into his plan for a system overhaul.
I would love to have seen the faces of those listening. But this is just frightening:
He also disputed charges that the overhaul would pay for abortions and care for illegal immigrants.

He said the reforms aim to carry out one of God's commandments.

"I am my brother's keeper. I am my sister's keeper," Obama said.

He called health reform a "core ethical and moral obligation."
Presidents have oft-invoked the Lord or the power of their faith as they've helped govern our nation. But this weirdo lingo that leaves President Obama looking like a meditating "Ohm" yoga instructor is too much.

Don't sing a different tune when you're in front of a faith audience. The abortion and illegal immigration charge is currently undisputed. No one wants it, and yet I haven't heard any member of Congress take it completely off the table.
