Federal social programs running in deficits


To the Editor:
Frank Wessling must be getting his talking points about Obamacare from Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and President Obama (The Catholic Messenger, 11//7/13). The Democrat party has complete ownership of this fiasco which compounds debt upon debt.
If Wessling believes a single-payer system (Medicare) is the answer, then he has too much faith in a federal government that is running deficits at an alarming rate year after year.
Where is the social justice in pervasive federal social programs staggering with deficits, fraud and abuse, which are harmful to those who are truly in need of help?
