Liberal versus Conservative health care policies

I found two articles illustrating the difference between conservatives and liberals on health care.

In this Paul Krugman editorial, the liberal viewpoint is represented. More control of the system will enable universal coverage.

In this editorial I found on the Heritage Foundation website, you have the conservative viewpoint. We need more freedom and personal choice in the system.

Which would you prefer? A system that makes a lot of decisions for you, but in which you always know you will have coverage, even if you're going through a "rough patch", or are you willing to accept some personal risk in exchange for more personal freedom?
