Rep. Allen says nation needs to pray more
Speaking to the weekly Tuesday gathering of men’s ministry at the Pathway Center on U.S. Highway 301, U.S. Rep. Rick Allen said he and other members of Congress pray for guidance.
Allen said the nation needs more prayer.
The congressman spoke against the recent rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court on its upholding of the Affordable Care Act, or known as Obamacare, and the approval of same-sex marriage.
“The federal government and Supreme Court have no business in messing with marriage,” said Allen, denouncing unions that are not of a man and a woman. “I actually pray asking the Lord to open my eyes if I am not being compassionate enough.”
Allen said that although the U.S. Supreme Court did vote in favor of same-sex marriages and Obamacare, he and other Congress members are pushing to repeal the measures.
“Congress can pass a law that the court has to obey,” Allen said.
A change would have to go through committee.
He said the U.S. House of Representatives would likely vote to repeal Obamacare, but a change in the Affordable Health Care Act would not occur while Barack Obama is president.
“Obamacare is a problem everywhere I go,” Allen said. “It is a big problem.”
He said health insurance premiums are expected to rise an additional 30 percent within the next year.
Allen said Obama and other Democratic leaders did not know what would happen with the act.
“They didn’t have a clue,” he said.
Allen said if the act was repealed, he would seek to allow the states to decide for themselves how they wanted to handle health insurance.
He said the plan would be to provide states with block grants to assist them with the change.
