Why Conservatives Are Radical on Health Care

The Obama administration wants to fix the nation's increasingly dysfunctional health care "system."

Wonks and politicians will have countless policy details to argue about. But all the details are boiling down to a contest between two basic approaches to delivering health care to Americans.

One approach is relatively incremental and might even be called "conservative." The other approach, however, would radically alter the way most Americans get their health care. It is completely untried and based on ideas that sound good on paper, but have no track record of working in the real world.

And here's the catch -- in the nation's mass media, the genuinely conservative approach is being called "radical," even "socialistic." The genuinely radical and untested approach is being offered by "conservatives."
