It isnít that conservative ideas about health policy donít exist, and it isnít that they wonít work. Itís that right now the feasibility question is purely academic, because even after five years of debating these issues, and despite Eric Cantorís best efforts, there still arenít enough Republican lawmakers willing to take even the smallest of steps toward putting those ideas to the test. This means that no matter how much of a ďbureaucratic nightmareĒ the implementation of the current health care law turns out to be, liberals at least have this ace in the hole: When it comes to health care reform, there is still no politically realistic alternative to their approach.
