“A God of second chances”

Our friends over at the NC Council of Churches have posted on their blog a conversation between our own Nicole Dozier and Council of Churches Volunteer Program Associate Sandy Irving about the legislature’s decision to block Medicaid expansion.

Here is the third paragraph of the article:

Nicole goes on to note that “the good news is that God is a God of second chances. On this group’s behalf, I am entreating the lawmakers who are blessed with the option of premium-free health coverage but who rejected federal money and blocked my brothers and sisters from having the same, to change their minds and their votes and to use the gift of the Affordable Care Act to expand Medicaid.”  And she further adds that she “wants to sincerely thank the lawmakers who through their testimonies, their actions, and their votes, were upstanders for the 500,000 uninsured working adults who deserve access to care resulting in better outcomes and a stronger North Carolina and who deserve to move forward with the rest of us who will be benefiting from the Affordable Care Act.“

Please read the entire post here. As we have said, rejecting Medicaid makes no moral or economic sense.

    Their second chance will be to go on whatever the Feds can put into place for this Obamacare scheme. Since that is a well thought out program that will lower costs and insure everyone then they are golden, and God has sent DC to save them.
