Private Insurance has failed

California doctors are being asked to look for (and report to Blue Cross/Blue Shield) any evidence of pre-existing conditions in patients, so that those patients can be dropped from coverage.

Some of my fellow Catholics oppose Single-Payer Healthcare because (they claim) it would violate the principle of subsidiarity, and thus would be a grave evil.

I think the actions of Blue Cross-Blue Shield are the latest sign that the private insurance model is unable to perform the function of providing healthcare to all Americans. Time for a Universal, Single-Payer plan.
