I must say, I am deeply concerned over politicians assuming that what THEY are comfortable with, we ALL are comfortable with. At it's core, faith of any type has a widespread understanding of those less fortunate and a heart felt need to help. We can kid ourselves into thinking that an 'executive' descision is best for all, but it never is. I do not believe any of the politicians we have voted into office on a state or federal level has EVER had the opportunity to go hungry. They have not suffered the loss of their home, a career. Nor have they come to beg for a meal or money to put gas in a borrowed vehicle in order to hunt a job, housing or food. How can you, in good conscience, vote yay or nay on a bill that may mean life or death for a human being? These desicions should be left up to the people. ALL of us. And for Lord's sake, give someone less fortunate a ride to the voting polls!
