Wasn't the Affordable Care Act Supposed to Give Everybody Insurance?

Californians Lose Insurance

Instead millions are losing their insurance, like the over a million in California! Forcing everyone into the exchanges is step one in reaching a single payer system, i.e. socialized medicine. It's a mess and it was planned. The president and his cohorts lied and they knew they were lying. And the mess goes on.

As I see our own children and my nieces and nephews affected by the bad economy and shrinking opportunities, I realize that some of them will not be able to maintain the same standard of living that we had no matter how hard they work. Many of them, despite college degrees, are working at blue collar jobs because that's all they could find.

And I'm afraid our grandchildren will grow up in a divided country with increasing ethnic and racial violence and a growing division between rich and poor with a shrinking middle class. It's not a pretty picture.

At the same time, I take heart from the reality that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord and serve according to His purpose. St. Ignatius in the Spiritual Exercises encourages retreatants to pray not only for spiritual poverty but physical poverty if they Lord wills it. Well, Obama certainly wills it and with close to 50% of the country on welfare, the other half will soon be driven to the poor house. Meanwhile, the Obamas, Pelosis, Reids, McAuliffes, etc. grow richer fattening on their taxpayer slaves.

Let us strive to grow rich by growing in the virtues of faith, hope, and charity.
