David Leonhardt, writing in The New York Times, presents Rhode Island as a state that is successfully combining liberal and conservative ideas about healthcare reform.

He writes:

“Conservative health reform is not an oxymoron. Nor is bipartisan health reform. It’s possible to combine conservative and liberal ideas to cover more people while holding down costs.”

“You can find a real-world case study  in Rhode Island.”

Gov. Gina Raimondo’s “strategy has been based on the most important — and, in a strange way, most promising — fact about American health care: Much of our spending doesn’t make us healthier.”
