A Conflict of Visions (Brooks)

What Republicans Think -

A good one by Brooks, the following paragraph is a pretty decent summary of how conservatives see the current welfare state model:
The welfare model favors security over risk, comfort over effort, stability over innovation. Money that could go to schools and innovation must now go to pensions and health care. This model, which once offered insurance from the disasters inherent in capitalism, has now become a giant machine for redistributing money from the future to the elderly.
