Your tax dollars at work

John Boehner and Thaddeus McCotter -- House Republican Leader and Republican Policy Committee Chairman, respectively, and Catholics both -- have released a statement stating that the message of Caritas in Vertiate
is clearly distinct from efforts to "remake" government into a soul-crushing centralized welfare state in which independent citizens are remade into dependent servants.
If I understand them correctly, then, it seems that Pope Benedict XVI is not calling for a soul-crushing centralized welfare state.

Good to know.
