Health care evolved from a ministry to a business. Opportunists pushed the Catholic Church out of the way to make health care what it is today. Declining numbers in health care ministries, greater government regulation and the cancerous growth of government health care programs have all contributed to the rise in health care costs and out of control insurance fraud. That the Church would support universal health care should not be surprising, particularly since it has been relegated to bystander status in the health care picture (for the most part). Their continued naivete about the tendency toward corruption with large government programs is frustrating. This from the people who preach to us about concupiscence.
