It’s easy to get the impression that conservatives are digging in their heels, slowing down health care reform with every effort they know – especially when Congress is dominated by Democrats, and the White House is home to Barack Obama.
But conservatives want health care reform, too. No one is happy about the 40 million uninsured Americans or the high costs associated with the current health care system.
While there is value in criticizing liberal ideas, not every idea from the right is reactionary. It’s refreshing to see a couple conservative leaders – like Bobby Jindal and Paul Ryan – suggest bipartisan means to reform.
