It's not socialist if you have a dictator.
Venezuela's problems are linked to Capitalism and a single resource economy(oil), that got hard hit in 2015. It's good to actually research something before just name-dropping. It wasn't Socialism, that caused the problems.What Are the Causes of Venezuela’s Economic Crisis?https://www.historyhit.com/what-are-the ... ic-crisis/

I don't need a source to dismiss your claim, as the ramblings of a conspiracy theorist then, right?
Since when do insurance company stocks go up when you get more insured at cheaper rates? That would cause insurance stocks to drop, which is why ACA is unpopular amongst the 1%ers. It's pretty "self-evident".

How? That's like saying the Universal Healthcare doesn't work, when it clearly does.

They do in many other countries where they have the equivalent of Medicare, so your argument is simply foolish.

No. It is nonsense. It is not borne out in reality, either.
