The US is a socialist country. Public expenditures on healthcare in the US are equal to all expenditures on healthcare per capita in Canada. You have large numbers of kids on school lunch programs. Schools are largely run by governments. The government provides pensions (social security) to its citizens. Corporate tax rates are higher than many other countries. When the great recession hit large groups of the population were on unemployment for long period of time, like over a year. You are a socialist country. Get over it.
Yeah, because the US is exactly like Venezuela...
Socialism is socialism. Fails every time it's tried.
And all of the above socialist programs are a failure or could be handled much more efficiently if the Feds got out of the way.
Health care - obviously it's fucked up
Schools - The state of public education in this country borders on criminal. Even the "best" school districts are horrific (if the goal is education).
School lunch - Have you seen what they serve? The school lunch program is really just a government give away to politically connected food suppliers.
Social Security - It's broke.
Corporate tax rates - Theft (and they will be reduced under Trump and would have been increased greatly if Bernie got his way)
Unemployment - long term UE benefits have contributed greatly to the sluggish "recovery" of the last decade. Hunger is a great motivator.
Can you name some US socialist programs that are successful? That are better than the private sector could do?
