Americans Borrowed $88 Billion to Pay for Health Care Last Year, Survey Finds
Americans borrowed an estimated $88 billion over the last year to pay for health care, according to a survey released on Tuesday by Gallup and the nonprofit West Health.

The survey also found that one in four Americans have skipped treatment because of the cost, and that nearly half fear bankruptcy in the event of a health emergency.

There was a partisan divide when respondents were asked whether they believed that the American health care system is among the best in the world: Among Republicans, 67 percent of respondents said they believed so; that number was 38 percent among Democrats.

But Democrats and Republicans had similar responses about putting off medical treatment. Asked if they had deferred treatment because of the cost, 27 percent of Democrats said they had, compared with 21 percent of Republicans and 30 percent of independents.

Respondents from across the political spectrum also reported pessimism about their leaders’ abilities to reduce health care costs. About 70 percent of respondents said they had no confidence in their elected officials to bring prices down. And 77 percent said they were concerned that rising health care costs would damage the American economy.

More White Evangelicals Than Not Say It’s Inappropriate for Trump to Sign Bibles | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos
Remember — what was it, a year and a half ago? — when Donald Trump signed the front covers of bibles during a tour of the tornado wreckage in Alabama?

Some said it was appalling behavior, even for a president, while plenty of white evangelical leaders defended the practice as no big deal.

Morning Consult just released a poll finding that, yes, plenty of Christians think it was completely inappropriate.

Churchgoing White Evangelicals Support Donald Trump More Than Any Other Group
Who loves Donald Trump the most? Here’s a shocker from the Pew Research Center: White evangelicals continue to give him the highest approval rating of any group — 69% — though even their numbers have gone down since the 78% support Trump had from them at his inauguration.

Non-white Catholics are the only group whose support for Trump has gone up since February of 2017, doubling from 13% then to 26% now.

And the religiously unaffiliated (which includes atheists, agnostics, and people who believe in God but don’t belong to any organized religion) never really warmed up to him at all, with our approval rating coming in at 20%, even lower than the 24% we gave him two years ago.

Secular Democrats Are the New Normal
Today’s white liberals don’t only talk about faith less than their predecessors did. They talk about it in a strikingly different way. Earlier Democrats invoked religion as a source of national unity. Bill Clinton declared in his 1992 convention speech, “There is no them; there’s only us. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” In his 2004 convention keynote address, Obama famously announced, “We worship an awesome God in the blue states.” The implication was that religious observance was something Americans of both parties shared.

Today, by contrast, progressive white candidates more often cite religion as a source of division. In his announcement video, O’Rourke boasted that during his Senate campaign in Texas, “people allowed no difference, however great or however small, to stand between them and divide us. Whether it was religion or gender or geography or income, we put our labels and our differences aside.” The only reference to faith in Warren’s announcement speech was an acknowledgment that “we come from different backgrounds. Different religions.” The lone reference in Sanders’s was a call for “ending religious bigotry.” While white progressives once described religion as something that brought Americans together, they’re now more likely to describe it as something that drives them apart.

It’s not hard to understand why. For starters, the percentage of white Democrats who express no religious affiliation has skyrocketed. According to unpublished data tabulated for me last year by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), 8 percent of white Democrats expressed no religious affiliation in 1990. By 2016, the figure was 33 percent. In 1990, white self-described liberals were 39 points more likely to describe themselves as Protestant than as religiously unaffiliated. By 2016, religiously unaffiliated beat Protestant by nine points.
