Buddhist Christ! What's the deal with the health care argument?

Whenever I hear about the health care arguments, I think of one man who tried to settle the same score. Now, I am a Buddhist rasied East Baythiest, but what I have rediscovered during todays research is that Jesus Christ was all about health care reform! I think what we really need is a democratic envangelist on the TV to get the word out to the people who have forgotten what the original message of Jesus was.

Only he would be able to talk to his people.

"Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me."

" When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. 13But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: 14And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just."

The care of the poor is a branch of charity. In the narrow sense charity means any exercise of mercy towards one's fellowman rooted in the love of God.
