Probably the biggest leap toward socialist recently is Obamacare (ie Afordable Care Act) though it doesn't deal with healthcare as much as health insurance. There is a difference between insurance and access to care.

What About Obama's American Health Scare Stories?
Obama has spoken many times about his mother who struggled with insurance companies and cancer at the same time. However, she was fully insured. In fact her struggle was to get the deductible paid by the insurance company as well. All of her medical bills and living expenses were covered by insurance and she was left with only a few hundred dollars a month for deductibles.
If Obama opens his mouth it's a lie! In fact yesterday he lied saying, "The truth is on our side." So he even lies about lying. Then again, that is what liars do. I remember the stories that he toured with while promoting Obamacare were lies too, though I cannot find them.
Competition = Improvement
Personal Reward motivates people to take risk and compete. Competition creates better prices and product improvements. Socialism destroys personal reward and competition. It creates a stagnant product base with decreasing quality. It doesn't matter what the industry is, substandard is the result of socialism.
