I'm not going to comment; just assume I've cut-and-pasted all my previous comments about the stupidity of socializing medicine.

Definition of fascism:
As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax. In its day (the 1920s and 1930s), fascism was seen as the happy medium between boom-and-bust-prone liberal capitalism, with its alleged class conflict, wasteful competition, and profit-oriented egoism, and revolutionary Marxism, with its violent and socially divisive persecution of the bourgeoisie. Fascism substituted the particularity of nationalism and racialism--"blood and soil"--for the internationalism of both classical liberalism and Marxism.
I've said it time and again, dang it. "Nazi" is short for (translated) "National Socialist".

...and Obamacare is fascism.
