Is universal healthcare a bad thing because it's a form of socialism?

Update:

Many countries have universal health care and are not bankrupt.

    Not really. So is the Postal Service in most countries a form of socialism. So are "Medicare" and "Medicaid". So is "Social Security". So are public schools. None of these things are "in the Constitution" (conservatives LOVE to use that as some bizarre form of measurement of worth, so I will about these), yet few people want to get rid of them and have to directly pay the fire department to put their house fire out or have uneducated kids (well, SOME people want this - "book-lurnin' iz stewpid").

    Democratic Presidential candidate John Delaney (D-MD) said Medicare for all would bankrupt all US Hospitals. If hospitals all had 100% Medicare reimbursement, they would all go bankrupt.

    No it's a human right. Capitalism is just about as bad as Socialism or Communism only Nazism works it's what we the people Demand. An end to Jewish Degeneracy and Filth and empathy for our fellow man.

    It's not a bad thing at all; in fact, it's a very good thing since everyone is entitled to have affordable healthcare. Medicare and Social Security are also socialist programs but no one has a problem with them. Only conservatives oppose it since they're fundamental evil, stupid people.
