How is it that the Conservative movement continues to lose the messaging war on public policy “fairness”? I gave a speech last night in Potomac where I addressed this specific point.
When we look at this question in terms of economic, healthcare and education policy, the Conservative alternative clearly produces results which are, by any measure, “fair”. When Reagan cut the top marginal tax rate from 70% to 28%, not only did tax revenue increase, but the wealthiest Americans paid a greater percentage of total tax revenue, not less. What is “unfair” about this?
Healthcare public policy has treated the poorest among us in a particularly brutal way. Here are the hard facts: according to a landmark University of Virginia study, a patient using Medicaid is nearly twice as likely to die after surgery than a patient with private insurance. Even worse, a patient with Medicaid is 13% more likely to die after surgery than a patient with NO INSURANCE AT ALL. How is this “fair”? The Conservative alternative simply gives a means tested benefit to struggling Americans to buy the exact same insurance plans wealthy Americans have access to.
Finally, it is the Conservative movement that is passionately fighting for school choice. According to Jason Riley of the WSJ, the nation has 20,000 high schools and, shockingly, only 2,000 are responsible for half of our dropouts. If you happen to be Black, you have a 50% chance of sending your child to one of these schools. This is a moral tragedy as these children have had their American Dream shamefully wiped out. We are the ones fighting for their shot at a better tomorrow, we are the ones fighting for fairness and equal opportunity for everyone.
Stop ceding the moral high-ground to cheap talking points. Take back the argument using the one weapon that the organized left has no defense against, the facts. – Dan Bongino
