Health care reform a moral issue
Dear Editor: President Obama left little doubt Wednesday night that health care reform to him is a moral issue that needs to rise above the partisan bickering that plagues Washington. As usual, the Republicans are out to protect the rich — and to hell with the poor. The only thing they think of with their little narrow minds is, how can I hang on to my money — my investments — my big dollars in the banks — to protect all of my interests?
The rich are notoriously shortsighted when it comes to protecting their riches. They think by hanging on to them, they can protect them. You're going to have to be better to the poor, or you're going to go bankrupt. You cannot amass all this wealth in the hands of a few rich and get away with it, (Luke 12:15-21.)
Our country can't go on robbing the poor and helping the rich, and get by with it.
