Why would the Catholic’s advocate for a smaller is better, or closer is better? The word catholic is practically the opposite of subsidiarity. Subsidiarity sounds like Baptist chaos cloaked in high minded selfishness. The poor need to be cared for in a personal way. They need to be empowered by choice and options. This is what Romney Care, or I’m sorry Obamacare, is bringing to the country.
