  • Would Jesus Approve of Obamacare? This MSNBC Contributor Thinks So.

    What would Jesus think of Obamacare?

    The question was the subject of debate on MSNBC recently between the Rev. Al Sharpton and Victoria DeFrancesco Soto, a fellow at the Center for Politics and Governance at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas.

    National Review’s Andrew Johnson spotted the clip, noting DeFrancesco Soto’s quip that Jesus would have approved of Obamacare:

    Would Jesus want to turn away people with preexisting conditions? Would Jesus want to see millions upon millions of people who do not have access to affordable health-care go without? I would aspire to think that the answer is no.

    Sharpton raised the issue in the context of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s recent comments about praying to God for Obamacare’s repeal.
