    “All countries with socialized medicine ration health care by forcing their citizens to wait in lines to receive scarce treatments.” He answered as follows: “Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.”

    Not true. I have gone to both the hospital and to doctors here in the Czech Republic and have never had to wait as long as I have waited at times in the States. Both the bill and medication was much less expensive.

    His opinion, but again untrue.

    The merger of business and government = Corporatism.

    "Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power". Benito Mussolini
