Your whole political philosophy is based on a slippery slope theory, which you find inevitable unless we cut off the advance to the 'top of the hill.' Ex: Market-involved healthcare reform? Can't have it. Why? Because it will lead to socialism. Alternative? No reform at all. Result: millions still w/o insurance, health care costs continue to rise exponentially, nobody's happy, but at least we avoided the hypothetical socialism that could have hypothetically happened down the hypothetical road.
First, a Republican compromise alternative to a liberal proposal is not the same thing as a conservative policy. Not by a long shot.
Second, no reform at all is a lie. A bald faced lie.
But you know all this, and simply wish to mischaracterize and lie for a few precious inches of partisan ground.
