In the Feb. 26 letters, someone wanted to know how a practicing Catholic could vote for President Barack Obama ("Core Beliefs"). I'm a practicing Catholic and I voted for Mr. Obama. I'm not a one-issue voter. President Obama works diligently to help the working class and the poor, to improve the economy, to keep our country safe, to improve education, etc. We need, as a country, to show concern and compassion for our citizens from birth to death.
