    SPECIAL EDITION

     A Catholic View of Health Care Reform, Continued.

    Shaking off a summer of setbacks, President Barack Obama summoned Congress to enact sweeping health care legislation last night, declaring the "time for bickering is over" and the moment has arrived to protect millions who have unreliable insurance or no coverage at all. In a televised speech to a joint session of Congress, Obama spoke in favor of a provision for the federal government to sell insurance in competition with private industry. But in a remark certain to displease liberals, he did not insist on it, and said he was open to other alternatives that create choices for consumers. We take THREE HOURS today to analyze the health care reform debate from a distinctly Catholic perspective. We talk with Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo, N.D., Leonard Nelson, author of Diagnosis Critical, Kristen Day of Democrats for Life, Douglas Johnson of National Right to Life, and Kevin Schmeising of the Acton Institute.
