Will Obama’s Healthcare Reform Produce a Religous Revival?

Posted Oct 13 2009 10:00pm

Many of the healthcare reform bills  under consideration include an individual mandate.  If you don’t purchase health insurance you pay a fee.  For the Senate Finance Committee and Senate Health Committee, this penalty would be up to $750.  The House Version would assess the fee as 2.5 percent of adjusted gross income over a certain level ($18,700 for a couple).  However, in all cases, individuals with religious objections would be exempt from these penalties from not purchasing insurance.

Will Obama’s healthcare reform efforts produce a religious revival?  It’s doubtful, but the number of people who claim to have religious objections to avoid compliance with the individual mandate will rise.
