Lisa Smith, right, helps uninsured Danielle Winters, holding her 7-month-old grandson Tyler, sign up for the Affordable Care Act outside the Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center in Jackson, Miss.

To the Catholic Sentinel:

The Affordable Care Act violates the Catholic principle of subsidiarity, which says things are best done at the local level. Medical treatment is best dealt with on the individual level.

Exceptions are epidemics and quarantines.
