A red letter day

A reader writes: Mark this day: A plan that provides health care for everyone, that is affordable, has my backing and I support Donald Trump in this endeavor. I agree. It will be fascinating to see if his base agrees too–and what that will do to the Vandal Horde of Republicans whose entire universe revolves [Read More…]

On the other hand, to Trump (highly tentative) credit…

…he *may* have just destroyed the GOP effort to destroy health coverage for the vulnerable. Hard to tell yet since he is such a prolific and promiscuous liar, but his pledge that everybody will be covered is a serious blow to the work of the Vandal Horde in Congress. It all depends on if he [Read More…]

Pope Calls for Guaranteed Health Care for All People

  More socialist rubbish from Commie Pope Francis. Oh. Wait.  This is from 2010 and it was Good Traditionalist Pope Benedict XVI saying it. Fortunately, the story was reported by the National Catholic Reporter and so can be safely ignored via the Genetic Fallacy. [Read more…]

The libertarian lie in response to this is that a state social safety net that guarantees poor children the health care they need [Read More…]

Man Confesses to Killing His Wife…

…because they could no longer afford her medication. Whenever you point out that the Church says health care is a right, the instant response you always get back from a libertarian heretic at war with the Church is some variation of this: “If the Government mandates or dictates rights (whatever they are) then I am [Read More…]

Roman Catholicism and Health Care as a Moral Issue

This makes me think of this: CCC 2288 Life and physical health are precious gifts entrusted to us by God. We must take reasonable care of them, taking into account the needs of others and the common good. Concern for the health of its citizens requires that society help in the attainment of living-conditions that allow them to [Read More…]

Just Because Obama is a Screwup

Doesn’t mean the GOP cares about you: There’s a reason the bishops have been saying health care is a right for nearly a century.  It’s what the Church teaches: 2211 The political community has a duty to honor the family, to assist it, and to ensure especially: – the freedom to establish a family, have [Read More…]
