Churches can’t sus­tain care in place of Oba­macare

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

Dale Lange [Let­ters, July 24] tells us in his let­ter that “Chris­tians, churches and com­mu­ni­ties have al­ways or­ga­nized to take care of the poor.”

When and where? Has any­one out there ever had their rent, med­i­cal in­sur­ance or food bills paid by a Chris­tian church or com­mu­nity on a steady ba­sis?

If you have, please write to the edi­tor so he can im­part the in­for­ma­tion to all the peo­ple who’ll be los­ing their health in­sur­ance when Oba­macare is re­voked.

An­other thing I found hard to be­lieve in his let­ter was his cav­a­lier at­ti­tude to­ward the Rus­sian in­volve­ment in our elec­tions. I’m amazed by the num­ber of Amer­i­cans who seem to share his opin­ion in spite of the ever-mount­ing in­crim­i­nat­ing ev­i­dence sur­fac­ing every day.

Elec­tions are one of our most sa­cred rights and in my opin­ion we should all be out­raged by the idea that an­other coun­try, es­pe­cially one like Rus­sia, our sworn and most dan­ger­ous en­emy, had even the slight­est in­flu­ence in their out­come.

Makes me won­der why I and so many other vet­er­ans risked our lives fight­ing Com­mu­nism in Korea and Viet­nam. ED­WARD MARTIN Rogers
