Dr. Alieta Eck, you’re a Wonder Woman. All of Congress is waiting for you!

Iraq. Benghazi. Lois Lerner’s emails. It seems the entire world is erupting into deception and chaos. We need a woman who can save us. Not Kathleen Sebelius. Not Lois Lerner. Not Hillary Clinton. We need Dr. Alieta Eck.

Dr. Alieta Eck is running for Congress in the state of New Jersey. She doesn’t rush to give Obama hugs when he visits Atlantic City. But she does rush to care for New Jersey’s poor, sickly and destitute.

In 2003, Eck founded Zarephath Health Center, a non-government free clinic for the poor and uninsured. Eck’s “business model” is inspired by the Gospels, specifically Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan. A man poses this question to Jesus: “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” and Jesus answers by telling the story of a generous passerby who helps a stranger who had been beaten and abandoned at the roadside. Jesus concludes: “Go and do likewise.”

Eck is a modern day Good Samaritan. She is a proven local public servant who is now aspiring to be a Congressional public servant. What a refreshing contrast to Hillary Clinton—a multi-millionaire who is undoubtedly vying for the highest “public servant” position in the land—while feigning that her past is pocked with money troubles.

Clinton has talking points. Eck is a new breed of politician: she has actions. Day after day, Eck practices what she preaches, which is a promise to: “fight every day to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a more sensible solution that leverages free market solutions to lower costs for everyone, protects choice in health care providers, and fosters innovation.” [emphasis added]

Eck understands that Obamacare is threatening entrepreneurial job growth at a time when Millennials, the middle class and the poor desperately need jobs—while failing to improve the healthcare system over all. Case in point: unless the Supreme Court intervenes, Obamacare threatens the entrepreneurial job growth of Hobby Lobby founder David Green.
