This is interesting. Tobias Buckell argues that Reagan and Pubs socialized medicine in 1986 when they passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act. That forced hospital emergency rooms to accept patients who could not pay but did not provide any compensation. http://www.tobiasbuckell.com/2013/10/01/american-healthcare-was-already-socialized-by-reagan-were-just-fighting-about-how-to-pay-for-it/
