My Thoughts on the Passage of Obamacare

CNA has the story of Stupak's caving in here and the bill passing by 219-212 margin on Sunday evening.

I have to admit now that I was a little concerned about whether Stupak would stand strong in the midst of the adversity, but he obviously caved into the pressures of the Obama administration. Some are calling him Judas, which seems to be a very accurate description.

I am not as concerned about Obamacare passing as I thought I would be because I know that in the end, God is victorious. I was disappointed that this bill passed, but not outraged.  God always has a plan and will provide a way out when we are faced with dilemmas or trials that seem overwhelming.

I believe that this bill will eventually die on the vine. The Republicans, Libertarians, and Independents who are elected into office in November will repeal this. If they are unable to repeal the whole thing, they'll try to reverse much of it via amendments to other legislation they'll be considering. Already, 37 states are in the process of filing lawsuits claiming that it is unconstitutional. Where will the money come from to pay for this? California and New York are already bankrupt! Practically every state is cutting funds for necessities such as education, mental health, etc. as it is. In the next presidential election, I can see everything Obama has done being reversed. The people of this country will be so sick of him by them that his Republican/Independent opponent will win by a landslide!

We have been persistent in prayer and will continue to pray and act to see that the ridiculous bill is reversed and God will act -- in His time -- not ours.
