Some Christians May Be Able To Opt Out Of Obamacare

  100-thousand Christians could avoid having to be part of Obamacare. It's because they could be covered under one of three major medical plans where costs are shared. Health care sharing ministries-- where everyone pays a premium, much like life insurance, and then medical costs are paid from that-- are exempt from the new healthcare reform law, Congress ruled last week. This religious-based system is the only organized health care plan to recieve a special exemption from the taxes, penalities, and regulations the law places on insurers.
