As Catholics we can discuss what may work best for our country, along with millions of other Americans who may not be Catholic. It may range from single payer to promoting more private options. This includes the ability to give charity out of our own pockets to help those in medical need. Rather some people choose to label Cardinal Regali as being political and out of line with Catholic teaching, when it is the vigilers who have little interest in their faith and acting solely on political intent!!.
