Obama: I Pushed Dodd-Frank And Health Care Reform Because Of Christ
At National Prayer Breakfast, Obama grounds his controversial policies in the Bible. Tax hikes for rich ď[coincide] with Jesus's teaching.Ē
"And so when I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies arenít discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders arenít taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody. But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in Godís command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself."http://www.buzzfeed.com/zekejmiller/...th-care-reform"And when I decide to stand up for foreign aid, or prevent atrocities in places like Uganda, or take on issues like human trafficking, itís not just about strengthening alliances, or promoting democratic values, or projecting American leadership around the world, although it does all those things and it will make us safer and more secure. Itís also about the biblical call to care for the least of these ó for the poor; for those at the margins of our society.
To answer the responsibility weíre given in Proverbs to 'Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."
