    It is quite simply, fascism, unless we ignore the Left's favorite expert on fascism, Benito Mussolini.

    By the way, for all the "experts" on Mussolini that like to throw around the fascism is corporatism quote, it is unlikely he ever said it, it certainly doesn't appear in any of his writings, and, even if he did say it, he wasn't talking about modern corporations, he was referring to vertically syndicated corporatism based on the early guilds.

    Yeah, kinda.

    Is this something you are against?

    Giving private corporations money to do things for the government?

    Nonsense and not very original.

    But, you're stuck with it. Doesn't it make more sense to learn the FACTS and then use them to your advantage?

    Why is it that only libs are able to do that? While the rw's are running around screeching about the sky falling and telling one lie after another and LOSING money and coverage as a result of their stubbornly holding on to their ignorance, the rest of us are enjoying the benefits of ACA.

    Grow up and take responsibility for yourself.

    Or don't. Doesn't matter a whit to those of us who are using the new laws to our advantage.

    Complete idiocy does not redeem your position, did you notice the Wiki article that actually explained corporatism and my point that, if he did say it, he wasn't talking about corporations?

    The funny thing about this is how people like you keep talking about facts, and then ignore the facts I use to make my point.
