For decades, government influence on the freedoms of the American people has been growing at an alarming pace. At times, it can sometimes seem like the government is involved in every aspect of our lives in one way or another. As is the case when either party has control over the White House and both houses of Congress, Democrats are sure to have a long list of actions they’d like to take prior to the 2022 midterm elections.

Many view the Affordable Care Act as a first step towards a government-run healthcare system. In reality, the push for universal healthcare in the United States dates back over a hundred years when the Socialist Party began advocating for universal healthcare (and if they couldn’t get that, for mandated health insurance) in the early 1900s. However, in recent decades, the push for a single-payer system has begun to chip away at the market’s efficiency and the American people’s understanding of the healthcare options they have available to them. While many would have you believe that every American must be enrolled in a health insurance program sold on the government-run exchanges, the truth is there’s a healthcare option available outside of the Affordable Care Act regulations that is currently utilized by over one million nationwide, and the option returns freedom to the consumer instead of taking it away.

While there are several organizations that claim to be healthcare sharing ministries, there are only approximately ten that operate legally at a national level under the Affordable Care Act.
