Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"

I am wondering how you might substantiate the claim the Romneycare is "socialized medicine"?
I can state categorically, having lived among rabid socialists that not ONE of them would conceive of any law that forces people by penalty of fine to pay money to for profit, multi-national corporations.
Under "socialized medicine" as the red neck right like to portray universal medical care, the only profits go to the hard working men and women who deliver the services, and the lobbying greed heads go suck wind or move to the land of the free to be a stupid voter.

I've followed Leftist politics for quite a while now and they always claim to know what's best for 'the masses', despite their infamous screw-ups over the years. I've no doubt that Gruber is representative of Left Wing leaders and that his fellow travelers believe themselves to be remarkably sophisticated about economics, human needs and understand intuitively and definitely what other people need and want in their lives.
'The masses' are always other people, "and we can all understand why it's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations". The masses have to be told what's good for them.
That's like your wife trying to cheat on you but it didn't happen because the guy didn't show up. Obviously conservatives are the type of people who would forgive that easily and stay married to that woman.
