More Dissent on the Right

The National Catholic Register's Pat Archbold has a post up that is at least more forthright than Cong. Paul Ryan's efforts to invoke the social magisterium of the Church even while undermining it. Atchbold writes, "The Bishops Were Wrong." Okay then. Archbold gets points for clarity, but his reasoning is ridiculous - is it really the case that our nation can't afford to keep programs that assist the poor going, yes with increases necessitated by inflation and population growth, to say nothing of the fact that we are in a recession, or is it the case that wealthy men like Archbold don't want their taxes to go up to pay for it?
