Seems to be a contradiction.

Make your case conservatives, refrain from ad hominem and derailing.

Show me how they are different

That's why I oppose pub education altogether. But politicians work in incrementalism, it's much more practical as far as their interests are concerned.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but your goal would be to completely abolish public education??

Is this the goal of school vouchers?

They aren't opposed to paying for Ins. They oppose, as do the Ins Cos, forcing those poor Ins Cos to use most of the premiums on, , care for policy holders.

In that case, I have no idea. After the whole Ron paul fiasco and further research into it, I stumbled upon a realization. We know how most mainstream conservatives fall on their knees and worship the ground a soldier walks on, right? Well, soldiers, more specifically combat veterans and (correct me if I'm wrong) military retirees are eligible for lifelong VA treatment. Well, the VA is 100% government healthcare with all healthcare employees being fedgov employees. If the VA and Tricare is good enough for our boys in uniform, why not for the general population? At least the private sector and insurance companies will have real competition and reduce their costs and be more efficient. Any state that does this is a winner in my book. The federal government should also support state efforts to do this as well. Again, if it's good enough for our military....

Don't do what the UK does and have an NHS, but at the same time, limit what private healthcare can do by statute, ensuring a government monopoly. Have everyone pay into Medicare (again, if it;s good enough for the majority of conservative seniors...) and be eligible to use public hospitals and doctors. If you're not satisfied, get much cheaper private health insurance and use the private health system.
