MSNBC’s DeFrancesco Soto: Jesus Would Approve of Obamacare

Obamacare: That’s the answer to the question “What would Jesus do?” according to an MSNBC contributor.

“Would Jesus want to turn away people with preexisting conditions? Would Jesus want to see millions upon millions of people who do not have access to affordable health-care go without?” University of Texas professor Victoria DeFrancesco Soto said on the network on Thursday. “I would aspire to think that the answer is no.”

DeFrancesco Soto was reacting to comments by Representative Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.), in which she encouraged supporters to pray if they’re discouraged about Obamacare.

“I’m just dumbfounded when Michele Bachmann brings God into the equation because what would a divine God, what would Jesus do in an instance like this?” she said.
