See , you are wrong again. Christians are taught that God loves everyone regardless of their orientation or political affiliation. Democrats only love and tolerate other Democrats. Democrats hate minorities who are conservative.
Not everyone.

You must kill those who worship another god. Exodus 22:20

Kill any friends or family that worship a god that is different than your own. Deuteronomy 13:6-10

Kill all the inhabitants of any city where you find people that worship differently than you. Deuteronomy 13:12-16

Kill everyone who has religious views that are different than your own. Deuteronomy 17:2-7

Kill anyone who refuses to listen to a priest. Deuteronomy 17:12-13

Kill any false prophets. Deuteronomy 18:20

Any city that doesn’t receive the followers of Jesus will be destroyed in a manner even more savage than that of Sodom and Gomorrah. Mark 6:11

Jude reminds us that God destroys those who don’t believe in him. Jude 5

The righteous considereth the cause of the poor; but the wicked regardeth not to know it. Proverbs 29:7
Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. James 5:1
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not thou are wicked, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. Revelation 3:17
...and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Revelation 11:18

Wealth redistribution: And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things in common. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as were possessions of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. Jesus and the apostles were socialists.

So you guys are saying that although God loves all people, he punishes those who fail to worship him. Your God, Obama (although he would prefer it if you thought of him as Allah) loves only himself and still punishes those who do not worship him.

She's from West Virginia and has a Harvard background, so there's that.

Also, the checks aren't sent to Obama. They go to the insurance companies. And I don't know of any insurance companies that release details about their collection rate, but it is known that they collect about 90 percent of premiums owed. I would say it would be a little lower, between 80-90 percent.

But, seriously, what difference does it make? If they don't pay, they don't get coverage.

They didn't "lose their coverage." They switched their plans. Takes an hour.
And keep pretending that doctors choosing what plans they accept is a new thing. It's funny.
they lost their coverage. Obamacare took many people weeks to get signed up. For higher priced coverage for services they don't want or need.

No such luck though, eh?

Speaking of judgements and end times...
The utter collapse of human civilization will be ‘difficult to avoid,’ NASA funded study says
http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/03/18/the-u...
''After running the numbers on a set of four equations representing human society, a team of NASA-funded mathematicians has come to the grim conclusion that the utter collapse of human civilization will be “difficult to avoid.”
The exact scenario may vary, but in the coming decades humanity is essentially doomed to some variant of “Elites” consuming too much,“resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society.”
That is, unless civilization is ready for one of two “major policy changes”: inequality must be “greatly reduced” or population growth must be “strictly controlled.”
The apocalyptic pronouncements, set to be published in an upcoming edition of Ecological Economics, come courtesy of a U.S. team led by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei and funded in part by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
The otherwise obscure report was first made public in a recent column in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper in which environment writer Nafeez Ahmed warned that it constituted a “highly credible wake-up call” and declared that its menu of suggested policy changes were “required immediately.”
In the days since, environmentalists, socialists, hard-line U.S. Republicans and even survivalists have taken up the banner of the 32-page study.
Derrick O’Keefe wrote in a Tuesday Twitter post that “this NASA-funded study makes case that future is socialism or extinction.” At about the same time, an anonymous commenter on M4Carbine.net declared “this is why I keep buying ammo.”
The study starts by reducing human civilization into four easy-to-toggle factors: Elites, Commoners, nature and wealth. The paper explains that this was done because “ecological strain” and “economic stratification” are the only two things that consistently plague collapsing societies.
Each factor was then assigned a complex mathematical equation and gathered together in what researchers called the HANDY (Human And Nature Dynamical) model.
The model was then configured to calculate the fate of several types of societies, including the “unequal society,” a system of rich and poor that researchers dubbed the one most “closely reflecting the reality of our world today.”
In the first scenario the population of elites suddenly spikes after 750 years, causing a “scarcity of workers” that sounds the civilization’s death knell by year 1000.
The second,“full collapse” scenario has the elites and commoners irreparably eating up the Earth’s resources after 350 years, leading to a slow bleed that destroys both humans and the planet by year 500.
“It is important to note that in both of these scenarios, the Elites — due to their wealth — do not suffer the detrimental effects of the environmental collapse until much later than the Commoners,” reads the paper.
“We could posit that this buffer of wealth … allows Elites to continue ‘business as usual’ despite the impending catastrophe,” it continues, suggesting that these kind of “oblivious elites” destroyed the Mayans and the Romans.
The only two scenarios that do not kill everyone, in fact, are the ones in which birth rates are either strictly controlled or “resources are distributed in a reasonably equitable fashion.”
The non-deadly scenarios “are designed to indicate the kinds of policies needed to avoid this catastrophic outcomes,” read the study.
I tend to agree with this and have said similar/related things for years. I dont foresee it anytime in the near future though, but the planet can only sustain a finite number of people with our current resources and humans are like locusts who devour everything in their path and leave nothing left.
