How to Outwit Obamacare with Christian Healthcare Ministries

If you are tired of Obamacare and it’s rate hikes, poor coverage, high deductibles, and massive out-of-pocket expenses, I want to offer one alternative (in addition to voting at the polls)… My family uses Christian Healthcare Ministries, which is a government-approved Christian medical-expense sharing ministry.
