As election season arrives and —and as we thank God for the hard- won freedoms this country enjoys during Thanksgiving week—it is important to point out the freedoms we have through Jesus Christ. His hard-won victory on the cross gives us five liberties.
The desperate sounds of Obamacare’s death spiral are reverberating through the White House. Obama’s legacy act is in deep, deep trouble.
Obamacare co-ops are collapsing one after another. The nation’s largest insurers are backing out of Obamacare exchanges. And double-digit premium increases are forecast as two of the law’s three taxpayer-funded insurer “bailout” programs (risk corridors, reinsurance) come to an end. Billions of taxpayer dollars to pay insurers for federally-mandated pre-existing condition coverage will disappear. President Obama wanted the young and healthy to be hit with these costs, but most of the young wisely refused to enroll.
But now, even as Obamacare implodes, Americans face the difficult realities of the law’s consolidation of the entire industry. These realities will be difficult (but not impossible) to reverse: higher premiums, higher deductibles, fewer choices, the loss of affordable insurance, penalties for being uninsured, loss of privacy, community and rural hospital closures, health system monopolies and the early retirement of trusted doctors.

On March 30, 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln called for a national day of prayer and fasting, in which he addressed what he called the need for “our national reformation as a whole people.”
“We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God,” Lincoln said, adding that it was our duty “to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness….”
How can we as Americans in 2016 do any less? AFA is joining countless churches, organizations, and individuals in calling for a national day of prayer and fasting. It is time that we, as Christians, recognize our need to repent of our own wickedness and cry out to the Lord for forgiveness – and that He might heal our broken land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
