Who can bring back the jobs?

Certainly not the Republicans. They can't get out of one anothers way tripping over thenselves to get to wall street and the banksters for a handout. What ever happened to this country.

If the Catholic church doesn't want the government's money, they should give up their non-profit status.

That means that all churches get money/subsidises from the federal government...indirectly....

Therefore, if they don't like what the government asks of them, don't take the government's money and give up their non-profit status.
