More on Health Care Reform

Sojourners just published a guide to the health care reform, which dispels many of the myths and rumors surrounding the debate. As opposed to the many circulating emails with no author and no citations to back up their misleading statements, the guide presents the facts.

Some of the myths that are outright lies include claims that families would be forced to get approval from a government panel before receiving health care, or that the elderly would be left to die. These are false claims intended to create fear among Americans. The truth is that we have a moral obligation to care for our neighbors, and health care is an important way we can do that.

Get all the facts here.
