When your thinking is predicated on the Church’s teaching (including the teaching that health care is a right) and not on party politics you can agree with anybody, even Donald Trump, when they advocate a position that is in harmony with the Church’s teaching and you don’t have to care in the slightest if it (*gasp*!) makes Obama look good or embarrasses Republicans. All it needs to do is comport with the Church’s teaching on the common good.
