The Free-Market Cure : Republicans, not John Kerry, could provide the right medicine for our health-care system.
David Gratzer, National Review Online, 9-28-04

"American health care has reached a crossroads: Either government's role will continue to expand, or health care will evolve away from bureaucracy. We know where Kerry stands. The president has begun to offer an alternative. He must make his case strongly and clearly, not simply for the sake of his re-election, but for the future of American medicine.
