Marie5890;11569784]To be fair and just, and we Catholics believe and strive for fairness and justice,
We do, but should a secular, corrupt government be the instrument to deliver that?
We’ve got a 10,000 year history or so that says otherwise.
Besides, government is hardly charity. It’s an element of force. How charitable can one really be if they are forced into charity? What graces come from that?
There are those of us who have been blessed, and have receive a great deal of relief, medical insurance-wise, by Obamacare.
At what cost?
As Bill O’Reilly said: “when this is all said and done, ObamaCare will have a 35/65 approval rating with the 35% getting the benefits and the 65% paying for it.”
I know that is not , cough cough, politically correct here at CAF, but it is an honest statement of reality that some may want to deny or at least, be blind to.
To refine a line from Alan Shore: “Haven’t you heard? Even the democrats are turning on ObamaCare now.”
Obamacare has made my life a great deal easier.
Sorry if the facts trouble some…
It’s not that I doubt you, but having lived in the UK for 6 months, I wish I had a dollar every time an American said “gee, I was abroad and never any problem with your health care system, so what’s the big deal?”
In the grand outlook, making policy for 316 million people based on a few personal testimonies is horrible governance.
In order to be charitable here, you need to look beyond what you are getting and how it affects everyone else.
Also, things may look good for you now, but we’ll have to see what happens should you need specialized care or if doctors in the USA really do decide to retire en masse.
I thank God, for His hearing of my prayers, and of so many others, here in America, when it comes to our health care.
Even if it means forcing nuns to pay for contraception? I don’t think that’s what God had in mind…:rolleyes:
(those of you who find this infuriating may now return to your otherwise deep seated biases… )
The bias of reality suits me well, thanks. :tiphat:
