10 Socialist Policies Implemented In The United States

8. Health Care

While Republicans have been decrying ObamaCare since the moment it was created, the healthcare system in the US has not been a truly free market in generations. During World War II, Franklin Roosevelt prohibited wage increases, which led to workers demanding health insurance as an alternate form of compensation. Both Medicare and Medicaid were created in 1965. They have both been thoroughly expanded in the time period since. As more Americans become insured (as they are mandated by the government to do so), prices increase and qualities decrease due to a larger pool and a broadening burden on doctors. Much like Social Security, cuts to Medicare and Medicaid are heresy, even as the programs balloon out of control. Obamacare is socialism because even though there might be dozens of insurance companies, the product is designed and created in Washington D.C.
