Your slip is showing

David Brooks in the New York Times today -- and noted with full awareness that Brooks may simply be self-trolling --

So, obviously, the elite commissions should push proposals that magnify that advantage: which push control over poverty programs to local charities; which push educational diversity through charter schools; which introduce more market mechanisms into public provision of, say, health care, to spread power to consumers.

Hasn't Brooks therefore just told us that localized poverty reduction programs, charter schools, and market-based healthcare are in fact elite policy preferences, which therefore explains their lack of traction with the proletariat?
