Bishops & Health Care "reform"


From Catholic News Service:
WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Though Bishop William F. Murphy of Rockville Centre, N.Y., concedes there's no political will in Washington to include illegal immigrants in health care reform, he believes it's the country's moral obligation to ensure that everyone in the nation receives proper medical care.

That includes those who enter the country illegally, he told Catholic News Service in mid-September.
-----------------------------------------------

The "big three" in the health care "reform" models are Abortion, Contraception, and Illegals. We don't want abortion funding. Well, tough, it'll be in there. We don't want contraception funding. Well, tough, it will be in there. We don't want illegals included. Well, tough, it will be in there.

The blind spot that the illegal cheerleader lobby has overlooked (willfully, I think), is that you won't be able to pick or choose from among the big three. By pushing for illegals to have access, the Bishops are aiding and abetting the expansion of abortion and contraception; Obama and the Democrats will not have a health care bill that doesn't include illegals, abortion, and contraception. That's the "big 3".

What the Bishops fail to realize is that by advocating a government takeover of health care, they're holding the door open for the very beast that will chew up Catholic healthcare and spit it out.

Health care for all, maybe, but from whose pocket? Sts Cosmas and Damian had something to say about the matter.

Well, I guess from the 60% of the population that's still dumb enough to work for a living, Hans...

Some cannot work for a living, and some livings are enough for bread, but not for medicare. But Sts Cosmas and Damien did not ask for the state to finance all medicare, they cared medically, as well as doing one or two miracles or so, but refused to take any money in fees.

I have no problem with this as long at the church stops expecting 10%. Then again they already only get about .5% from Average Joe Catholic.

I have a problem with socialism - but I understand that the bishops don't. Many of them support the socialist ideals, which of course, is easy to do when you live in an insulated world.

Khrushchev, a more contemporary Soviet prime minister, said: "We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.''
