Progressives tell us sexuality and gender are fluid. Progressives claim men should be able to go into the women's locker room if they feel like identifying as women. Is religion fluid , according to progressives? Is there a plan in the works by Senator Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump to encourage anyone who doesn't want to pay the ObamaCare penalty to identify as Amish? The Morning Call reminds us:
The debate over U.S. health-care reform that has gripped the nation and led to a government shutdown is of small concern in rural Pennsylvania's Amish country for a very simple reason.Would a President Donald Trump tell you that you can be online 24/7 and still in your heart be Amish via executive order?
Along with eschewing cars and many other modern technologies, the descendants of 18th-Century German immigrants who practice the Amish and Old Order Mennonite religions, have effectively opted out of Obamacare, along with most federal safety net programs.
A little-known provision of the law with its roots in a 1950s battle over Social Security exempts these communities from the individual mandate, an element of the Affordable Care Act that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance by January or face tax penalties.
