John McCain: We used hundreds of billions of your tax dollars to prop up banks & the free market system.
John McCain: But, hey. Anything to avoid socialism.
America is no more a lassez faire capitalist nation than it is a socialist nation. It has elements of both. It would be nice to be able to have an intelligent dialogue on the issue. Social Security is going to save a lot of retirees from dire poverty after the Wall Street crash, and nationalized health care similar to what Europeans get would save Americans up to 50% on health care while providing better outcomes than we get out of the present system, though we pay 200% what they do. What’s not to like, unless you are a health care executive? The other benefit that Europeans get from nationalized healthcare is that they will never go bankrupt because of their health. That’s the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S., by the way. My mother may lose her (100% paid for) house and life savings due to illness. So the next time a politician warns you about socialism, kick him in the pants.
