Is the concept of universal health care one step closer to Socialism?
The Universal health care system proposed by Obama and his Party could very well be considered part of a Socialist agenda. It will stifle innovation and decrease the care of those who pay for it. Hard working Americans will have to pay more and get less. All of the people who pay no taxes will pull the system down, and over burden it. How is this a vision of a better America? America cannot even afford Social security, let alone the huge deficit the Government already maintains. How would Obama be able to decrease taxes when he would increase the size of the government by hundreds of thousands of Health care workers?

The Liberals are never going to be satisfied until the government takes everything from us. That's their idea of freedom. Liberal? They could care less that the... More

You actually think that Americans should die because you don't like the word socialism and put the life of our soldiers in danger to save other countries because you like the word patriotism.

It is possible that this society is secretly a homeless-without-health insurance death camp. Racketeering involving unemployment statistics not including persons that have given up looking for work, all-new companies every 4 years, and an average employment duration of one year possibly helps this to exist also.
