The GBPG tilts rightward?

Is it just me, or is this editorial on single-payer "universal" government health care unusually conservative for the Green Bay Press Gazette?

…we should be more cautious about having politicians and government agencies redesign our health-care system.

…The solutions are elusive and most likely will involve collaboration between the public and private sectors. Our instincts tell us the answer lies more in the direction of competition and the innovation of free enterprise, not in the direction of government control and centralization. We urge healthy skepticism toward politicians who advocate a government-run single-payer system.
Amen, brother. Are you sure you're not the Beloit News?

Some of the comments are hilarious. This one’s my favorite:

The fact that the leading cause of bankrutpcy in this country is medical bills is a national embarassment.

Yeah, that’s worked really well in all the other places its been tried.
