    Conservative journalist David Frum worries that Republicans would only win a failing status quo in their fight to kill health care reform. Bill Moyers sits down with the former special assistant to George W. Bush, who is calling on Republicans to come up with a plan for health care reform and suggests changes that conservatives can favor. David Frum is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the editor of NewMajority.com. Also on the program, the "Journal" sorts fact from spin in the health care debate. Media analyst Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Kaiser Family Foundation President and CEO Drew Altman discuss the messages in health care ads today and how well they reflect the real issues of health care reform.
