As the Obamacare showdown hangs in the Supreme Supreme Court of the United States of America awaiting their decision, Democratic consultants appear to be void of a marketing plan to make the cornerstone of President Obama's health insurance more popular with Americans. According to a recent New York Times/CBS poll, 62% of Republicans strongly disapprove of the Health Care law. A simple message that Jesus Christ once gave almost two thousand years ago would likely change the minds of many God-loving Republicans on the issue of universal health insurance.

RembrandtAs Jesus was talking to His disciples, a certain lawyer stood up and asked, “Who is my neighbor?” And Jesus answered by telling them this story:

A certain man left from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who robbed him, stripped him of his clothes, and, wounded him, leaving him on the road for dead. By chance there walked by a priest, and, as a teacher of religion to men, he should have stopped to help the poor man. Instead of doing what was right this, he pretended not to see, and passed by on the other side of the road. Then there walked by a Levite, who also, as an official of the church, should have helped the man. But he merely walked by and looked upon the injured man. Then, he passed on the other side as the priest had done.

Finally, there walked by a Samaritan, and, when he caught sight of the wounded Jew, he went over to him and was very sorry for him. Now the Jews hated the Samaritans, and were their enemies, so that it would not have been surprising if he, also, had done as the priest and the Levite did. But, no! Though it was his enemy, he could not pass him by and leave him on the road, perhaps to die. He examined his wounds and bound them up; doing all that he could to aid the man. Then he lifted him carefully on his own beast, and brought him to the nearest inn, and took care of him through the night. The next day, when the Samaritan left, he paid the man who kept the inn, and said to him, "Take care of this poor man until he is well, and whatever it may cost for his lodging and food, that I will pay you when I come back."
