John Birch Society activist: Nullify Obama (Soetoro)care and rely on churches for health care
Conservative activist Jesse Graston on Tuesday told a crowd outside the South Carolina Statehouse that the Affordable Care Act should be nullified and replaced by charity from churches.

Republican lawmakers in South Carolina are pushing legislation that seeks to block the implementation of Obama (Soetoro)care in that state. The South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act was passed in the state’s House of Representatives last year.
Graston said South Carolina was “leading the resistance against the abomination of the Affordable Care Act.”
Graston noted there was also going to be a pro-Obama (Soetoro)care rally at the South Carolina Statehouse. He said both conservatives and liberals wanted affordable health care, but differed on how to achieve that goal.
“They think it’s the duty of others to help them take care of the poor,” he remarked. “We believe that we shouldn’t take from others to help take care of the poor or to help ourself, but we follow Christ’s example.”
“He did not steal from his disciples to feed the hungry,” Graston continued. “No, he gave of his own substance to those that were in need, and I believe that as we’re saying no to the encroachments of the federal government, that we will have to stand up and the churches must take their place to take care of the needy. I’m asking as we push the government out of the way that we need to fill that vacuum and begin to see those that around us and take that initiative ourself.”
