Amend, Not Repeal

Catholic Quote of the day yesterday from the USCCB:

Following enactment of ACA, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has not joined in efforts to repeal the law in its entirety, and we do not do so today.The decision of the Supreme Court neither diminishes the moral imperative to ensure decent health care for all, nor eliminates the need to correct the fundamental flaws described above.We therefore continue to urge Congress to pass, and the Administration to sign, legislation to fix those flaws.

Which means they will not fight to repeal the law that gives universal health care, rather they will work to lobby the federal government to amend the law, rather than repeal it in its entirely.

A reasonable strategy and one that insures conversation continues and no longer polarizes.

Maybe things are getting better? Cooler heads, people. Cooler heads!
