Beware, There's Socialized Medicine Afoot!

zmayhem speaks with a long-time patient about scheduling an appointment with a very busy doctor:
[Random Woman] (in winky-winky confidential tones): I'm just very concerned, and I thought I'd better get in to see him while I still can, before socialized medicine happens. I'm used to being able to see my specialists right away. I'm very concerned.

Me (brightly): Well, socialized medicine would be a wonderful thing, but I regret to say that we're probably at least a decade away at the earliest.

RW: Well, then, single payer. Isn't that even worse? Anyhow, I want to see him today, before the socialism.

Me: ::brains explode::

Make sure to read the context, before the socialism.
