FOR WHOM DOES THE USCCB SPEAK IN THE HEALTH CARE REFORM DEBATE?

An impressive body of work has amassed over the years by professionals and organizations dedicating serious effort to recommend improvements without undermining the fundamental recognition that free enterprise and free associations offer the best way to expand the delivery of medical services making them portable and accessible and more affordable. The sobering and very real concern is that policy makers disregard the deliberate and steady approach required in making improvements versus the emotionally appealing “reform now” approach of the administration and of the USCCB and its affiliates.
