Yeah, I don't get how such a large chunk of US healthcare is socialised but giving the option to everyone is "communism"... We have socialised health care but you can certainly buy private health insurance and go to a private hospital if you want. You normally don't even need a significant amount of health care until you're old enough to qualify for Medicare and you get to pay three times more in insurance premiums than what socialised health care would cost in taxes just to wait until you're provided with socialised health care when you actually need it.
