A Catholic position on health-care reform?

Re the editorial in the Aug. 15 issue of the [London] International Catholic Weekly, is there anyone out there who doesn't agree with this editorial? It seems abundantly clear to me that, regardless of one's position on other public issues, this is one issue on which all Catholics (indeed all Christians) should agree. Christ taught us to love others. That implies caring for others. Doesn't Christ want those of us with greater means to provide opportunities for access to basic health-care services for those with less means? We can reasonably debate the particulars of how best to implement this Christian duty, but how can we possibly deny that the extant system does not do so and that major reform is necessary. I'm genuinely curious to hear if others think I'm missing something.
