The dishonest selling of Obamacare

The dishonest selling of Obamacare

As we experience more of the unpleasant realities of the Affordable Care Act, Americans are questioning, finally, the forthrightness and honesty of their president in his selling of this law. As millions of individual health insurance policies are cancelled, it is transparent that the president distorted the truth when he told Americans, “if you like your plan you can keep it.” But misrepresentation goes beyond how a particular feature of the law was sold. It also applies to the selling of what this whole law was supposed to be about.

Can You Trust the Bible?

Can You Trust the Bible?

Many people who don’t know better (and some who do) say the Bible is full of errors and can’t be relied on historically and scientifically, much less for our eternal destiny.

The First Thanksgiving by Jennie Brownscombe

A Remnant of the Truly Thankful

My dear friends in light of our nation’s godlessness, abounding moral relativistic thinking and secularism there is still a remnant throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and knows His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so teach.

Message to GOP Establishment: Whimpering Isn’t Leadership

Republican leadership seems more concerned with taking on the tea party and any candidate that dares to question their effectiveness, instead of doing what they should be doing to defend their party’s prerogatives in the institution of the Senate.Apparently, that taking out the tea party is a more urgent problem to leaders than the impending destruction of the nation’s health care system and the disintegration of the Senate as a meaningful check on executive power.

SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Hebron Couple Caught Medicare Billing Error

On November 25, 2013, I worked with a senior citizen couple from Hebron, Indiana. The couple had caught a Medicare related medical bill error and wanted to know what they should do about it. The wife had visited a doctor’s office in Merrillville on a particular day.
