Would Jesus approve of Affordable Care Act?

Date published: 5/16/2014

Would Jesus approve of Affordable Care Act?

I truly enjoyed the refreshingly honest letter from reader Frank Brodersen ["ACA is far from socialized medicine," April 21].

He rebuked a reader who wrote that the ACA "will socialize American medicine." At least the word "Obamacare" didn't come up.

By no means would anyone ever mistake me for a Bible scholar, but I do remember the basics I learned as a child. Jesus said "bring me your sick and your lame," etc., and he cured them.

I don't recall anything about "insurance plans," nor do I remember anything about leprosy being a "pre-existing condition." Perhaps Jesus was a socialist.

"Jesus-care," perhaps?
