First there was National Greatness Conservatism . Now it appears we have Great Society Conservatism :

In other pockets of the state, the reaction to Democratic proposals has been strong, too. At a recent town-hall meeting in suburban Simpsonville, a man stood up and told Rep. Robert Inglis (R-S.C.) to “keep your government hands off my Medicare.”

“I had to politely explain that, ‘Actually, sir, your health care is being provided by the government,’ ” Inglis recalled. “But he wasn’t having any of it.”

What we need in this country is smaller, less intrusive government—government that doesn’t interfere with our life, liberty, and pursuit of entitlement programs.
