They -- the GOP-- sell the idea that anything representing collective action, if enacted, is a "slippery slope" toward "socialism" and must be stopped. There has never been any historical evidence of this "slippery slope" argument, unless autocratic leftists got themselves elected and merely seized power permanently.
This discussion of "isms" conducted in the political arena is scaremongering and mostly the comfort zone of the colossally ignorant. You can identify these ignorant people by making a joke like this: "After four years of Trump, I've decided to embrace Socialism!" The assholes will go totally ballistic.
We've had a "Mixed Economy" since the Roosevelt era. The purposes of government include reducing risk and chaos, and providing those things collectively which logically cannot be provided by free markets. Further, you cannot have free markets without government regulation or people would merely begin stealing from each other.
At this point, considering the posted news about a congressional vote, it demonstrates the sort of nonsense clattering around in GOP brains. Boogeyman Socialists under their beds.
The logical approach to this, since "Socialism" was a philosophical answer to the evils and pitfalls of capitalistic process, is to consider the collective action to specific kinds of problems as a toolbox of solutions.
They always put their cart of beliefs before the horse of common sense.
I wouldn't give a Republican roadside first-aid if his whole family were in flames inside the car. I'd only grab a cell-phone video to post on You-Tube for chuckles and laughs. Not my fellow human beings; not my fellow Americans.
They are the Enemies of America, and the Enemies of civilization. That has become clear with these latest plots to destroy power plants and bring down civilization to start a race war.
