Hard-work conservatism

David Brooks has some praise for Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream, which I reviewed for the New York Post, and for reform-minded conservatism more generally. As Brooks says:
This is not compassionate conservatism (which flattered the mind of the compassionate donor), it’s hard-work conservatism, which uses government to increase the odds that self-discipline and effort will pay off.
