A repetitive theme here: we need to advance a positive, credible agenda for the future on a range of issues. I’m not likely to come up with good ideas myself, so I’ll point to things I find worth reading.
David Frum was in the George W. Bush White House (as a speechwriter; he coined the phrase “axis of evil”) so I often disagree with him on policy matters. Perhaps because he’s a Canadian he’s proving more sane in this era. He was an early Never-Trump, and he’s been splendid on why Trump is simply the wrong person to be president. And he is interesting on policy matters. Worth Reading today is a piece he has in the The Atlantic (for whom he now writes) on How Republicans Can Fix Healthcare. It will help you see what a sane conservative approach to health care reform would look like.
Me, I’m for a single-payer health care system.
