‘I Am Very Worried About Federal Spending,’ Obama Says in Defense of His Trillion-Dollar Health Care Overhaul

At his prime-time news conference Wednesday night, President Barack Obama ducked a question on whether he’d opt for a public health plan himself; criticized insurance companies for making profits; and vowed that a health care overhaul package would be entirely paid for by the wealthy – and not add to the federal budget deficit. Obama said opponents of his health care plan have used the “deficit” argument effectively “to suggest that somehow this (health care overhaul) is one more government program.” Read full story

Pray that President Obama is open to the Holy Spirit's gentle guidance in where to step and with whom to consult regarding the economy. May he turns away from godless chatter that could distract him.

1 Timothy 6:17-21 "Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith."
