Just Vote No on Florida Amendment 4

Vote No on Amendment 4On the ballot is the Florida’s Abortion Amendment. The bishops in Florida say it best.

“We urge all Floridians of goodwill to stand against the legalization of late-term abortion and oppose the abortion amendment. In doing so, we will not only protect the weakest, most innocent, and defenseless of human life among us but also countless women throughout the state from the harms of abortion,” said the bishops of Florida in their statement on Amendment 4. You can read the full proposed amendment here.

In my parish we have the Veronica Guild with contains 6 different teams. I serve on the one Honoring Life. So, for us this is just what we are all about. We honor life in all its stages. And, of course, abortion is a big part of our efforts. There is more information on it here.

Father and maker of all, you adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness. Awaken in every heart reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain your precious gift of life. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen (USCCB)

Keeping up Hope for Health Insurance

We’ve had our agent working on 2014 health insurance for a couple weeks now. He’s been having a hard time getting good information. I wonder why?

I don’t know about y’all but this ObamaCare thing is the biggest mess I’ve ever seen and I don’t know how they’re going to fix it. I got pretty fed up with it and posted a letter to President Obama on Facebook which I thought I’d share. Hopefully you’ve already let your senators and representatives know how you feel.

Dear Mr. President:

Im writing to let you know that your ObamaCare isnt working. Did you know that? Well, of course you did. Ill bet from your perspective its working great. Exactly the way YOU want it to.

When you got into office promising hope & change even a conservative like me hoped for the best. Didnt happen. Except for the change part. I thought our country was embarrassed by Bill Clinton as president but you are now number one in the embarrassment category as far as Im concerned. I believe your legacy will be as a cheap, arrogant dictator wannabe with the most inept group of administrators ever appointed.

Getting back to ObamaCare. I always reserve full judgement until I have some facts and experience. Ive got more than I want now. My health insurance company will let me renew my plan on Dec. 31 this year as long as I agree to a 24% increase in premium. This is after moving to Florida a little over a year ago and getting new health insurance then that was about 24% higher than what I had before. They pointed to your law as the reason for that increase. Were talking thousands of extra dollars in expense in 2014 that will severely impact my company and income. No one subsidizes me and I dont want someone elses money

Why should Americans care about this? To start with, its happening to millions of people. Many are people like me. I have a small business with my wife. We provide important income not only for our family but also for nine people we pay every month. Your law means we now have to make decisions that might mean not paying one of those people next year. Or paying them all less. Now thats change! I really cant believe people are willing to let your government order citizens to buy something they dont want or need.

I dont like ObamaCare. Id like it to be repealed in full. Fat chance of that happening now that the idiots in Congress have allowed it to happen. You lied to the country you swore to serve. Your apology is not only tepid but I do not accept it. I envision you getting out of that studio and laughing at all the people who are willing to believe anything you say. I feel sorry for them. And I feel sorry for you too. You, your family and our country will continue to remain in my prayers though. One thing I never give up on is Hope.

Take Action To Oppose Current Health Care Legislation

nccb-health-care-adIf you have not taken action to contact your elected leaders in the House and Senate about proposed health care reform then please do so immediately. There are a lot of back door deals being made but the Senate version with its provisions for abortion funding are the most heinous aspect of this terrible piece of legislation.

If you’re not sure how to go about contacting your legislators the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops makes it easy with an online form that takes the work out of it. I used it this morning to notify me leaders of my opposition to what they’re doing and I urge you to do the same.
