David Frum: "Conservative Movement Destructive." Don't say you weren't warned.

Bill Moyers interviewed the arrogant and sometimes lucid David Frum, and got a measured intellectual opinion on the health care debate. Besides taking a little thunder away from elitist big thinker Newt Gingrich, Frum advocates federal control of interstate insurance competition. That's right, big government control and mandates for a basic health care plan up for competition.

But near the end of this clip, Frum offers a scathing rebuke of the current right wing anti-government zealotry. He predicts that if Republicans succeed in stopping health care reform, they would have destroyed any chance of the possibility of future tax cuts.

Frum recently said, "Still, you have to be aware that there's a line where legitimate concerns begin to collapse into paranoid fantasy."
