Charity job of individuals

To the editor:

In his column for the September print edition, the bishop wrote of the need for health-care reform. The state needs to do a better job of management in all areas that it deals with, that is true. However, when final judgment comes for each of us, our Savior will not ask, “What has the state done for my poor and weak?” He will ask, “What have you done for the poor and weak?” We will each individually be judged. The Lord looks at individual people and says, “Feed my sheep.” The state does not need any more power. The individual needs to be empowered in order to help the needs of the weak. When each of us are taxed beyond our ability to pay, how are we able to fund the programs with true need?
