Obama and the Democrats' liberty-restricting healthcare bill is not the Democrat's first run at a socialistic regimented healthcare. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, there was an attempt to extend socialism towards healthcare.
In a 1961 audio recording, President Ronald Reagan warned citizens that government-subsidized medicine would diminish Americans' freedom, forcing citizens to let the government control their every move.
