Today the House passed the American Health Care Act as a replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act. If I had the pleasure of being Pennsylvania’s representative in the Senate, I would vote no to this bill. The AHCA bill is just an Obamacare Lite that does not fix the overall problems that the Affordable Care Act is causing Americans. Without a mandate, the government monopoly on healthcare cannot work, and with the mandate the system is corrupt. The GOP bill will cause premiums to skyrocket. We need to bring the purchasing power of insurance back to the consumer by offering free market solutions. Instead the AHCA gives the insurance companies an open check book to make insane profits while driving the level of care further into the ground. We must repeal, but not replace. When you put out a fire do you look for another catastrophe to replace it with?”

Dale Kerns of Ridley is a Libertarian seeking to replace Bob Casey as U.S. Senator.

After everyone sang “America the Beautiful,” there was a moment of silence for our fallen soldiers and emergency workers. Honorable Mario Rivera, Chairman of Delaware County Council led the Resolution for the NDP.

Topics addressed during the hour of prayer included the theme message “For Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us . . . Forgive Us . . . Heal Us!”

“O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay because your city and your people bear your name,”  Daniel 9:19 was read by Mrs. Patti Bruno, who is Director of NDP and Delaware County Task Force.

Blowing of the Shofar and a call for prayer was presented by David Buffum, of Congregation Beth Yeshua, Overbook Park. Praise and worship music was led by the Rockdale Boys.

Rev. Dr. Wylie Johnson, of Springfield Baptist Church, prayed for our Veterans and Armed Forces; Pastor Perry Messick, of First Baptist Church of Collingdale, prayed for our police, fire and emergency medical teams; Pastor Bob Guaglione, of Calvary Chapel of Delaware County, prayed for our government leaders; Pastor Meredith Harper, of Quakertown Baptist Church, for revival in the land and unity in the body of Christ.

Father Rob Hagan, of Villanova University, prayed for our churches, clergy, youth leaders and service ministries; JP Berk lifted up peace of Jerusalem; retired Interboro teacher Robert Kern, schools, teachers and youth. Ed Cameron, owner of Copy Products and kindly donated all the paper products and signs for the event, prayed for our professionals and businesses. Diane Pluff, prayed for marriages and families; Monica Guaglione prayed for the arts, entertainment, Hollywood and media.

K-Love, 106.9 FM Christian radio station, was in attendance. There were red tents for those who needed personal prayer and healing.

To volunteer for next year’s National Day of Prayer, May 3, 2018, contact Mrs. Bruno at 610-416-8336.

Pennsylvania Obamacare Repeal Nays

Pennsylvania Obamacare Repeal Nays — A quarter of the House Republicans voting to save Obamacare come from Southeastern Pennsylvania.

You can guess the names of these profiles in hackery but we will list them anyway:  Ryan Costello of the Chesco-centered 6th District; Pat Meehan of the Delco-centered 7th District, Brian Fitzpatrick of the Bucks-centered 8th District and Charlie Dent of the Lehigh County-centered 15th District.

Note that all the districts but the 8th are horribly gerrymandered and cross more than one county line.

All these men run as pro-lifers but voted, May 4, to save Obamacare’s mandate that businesses pay for abortions. All these men claim to be “fiscal conservatives” but voted to keep 12 job-killing taxes including taxes on prescription medicine and medical devices.

What could these men have been thinking? Why of coasting on the easy road, of course. They listened to pressure groups paying for push polls. They bowed before political consultants — you know, the kind that President Trump notably ignores.  They figured they’d follow that broad path to the wide gate of wealth and power rather than fight for what’s right.

They lacked the will — or perhaps, more charitably, the imagination — to articulate to those whom they represent why getting rid of these taxes and mandates will make their lives a lot, lot, lot  better. They refused to go out and sell this repeal plan to their constituents just as they refused to sell President Trump’s candidacy last November. This is especially ironic as the passage of Obamacare was responsible for sending three of the four to Washington.
