Obama's religion may matter, depending on what it is and if he actually believes and practices. Some say he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. I don't know if this is true as only he and God know this, but much of what he says contradicts the Word of God. We shall know them by their fruits. If he's deceptive or lying, then he cannot be trusted.

Also, I don't understand why he thinks the government is responsible for our health care. I think the only responsibility the government should have is whether or not the medical establishment is operating legally, fairly, and ethically. I know for a fact that a 1,000 page prescription drug bill written by the drug industry was introduced for legislation and passed by our Congress and Senate without even a look see.

It stands to reason that many more bills written by the medical establishment were introduced for passage into law without the public's best interest. Medical costs have risen too much and without oversight. It is likely because our government has involved itself, i.e., Medicare and Medicaid that corruption is now rampant.

Health care is not anymore a right than owning a cell phone or a television. Freedom and the right to pursue happiness are the rights given to us by God and that is what our Constitution says. We need to be responsible people and know for ourselves what the Constitution says. Quit depending on politicans to define it for you. They do so for their own benefit, which is to obtain power over the people. If you don't believe me, look back over the past 100 years.
