To the Editor:
In his letter to the editor (The Catholic Messenger, 11/28/13/) John Freeland seems more intent on bashing federal social programs, the debt, the Democratic Party and editorial writer Frank Wessling than dealing with social justice. Lost in Freeland’s rant is the fact that we have approximately 46 million people in the U.S. without health insurance. Social justice cries out for something better than this.
The goal of the Affordable Care Act is to provide an opportunity for the uninsured to acquire affordable coverage, a noble and worthwhile endeavor. Despite its rocky start, only time will tell whether the ACA will work in the long run.  If it does, our country will have made significant progress toward providing better health care for all of its people. In the meantime, rather than complain, those who are not satisfied with the ACA would do better to devise what they think is a better alternative.
