Morning Joe & NR

Cardinal Wuerl was on "Morning Joe" this morning and made the point of how "health care" has been redefined. Mark Steyn said a similar thing in the latest National Review:
If health care is a “human right” in the debased contemporary sense (i.e., not a restraint upon the state — as in Magna Carta — but a gift of the state), then who gets to define what health care is?

Answer: Commissar Sebelius.
I also loved Cardinal Wuerl's response to Mika B. when she said Catholics use artificial contraceptives. He said something like, "Yes, and do you know there are Catholics in jail?". In other words, failure to live up to a standard does not invalidate the standard.
