I highly doubt it
I think their goal is to try and help people during the worst economic down turn since the "great depression"
There will always be some element of "socialism" within the American fabric of life. One reason is because it's part of the American spirit to lend a hand to those in need.
Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, Food shelters, Government grants, tax incentives for farmers and businesses, no taxes on church properties....etc In fact the government offers us tax deductions for supporting charities and buying a home.
All of the above could be considered forms of socialism I suppose.
Some people believe if we can provide billions of dollars of aid to other countries in need and spend a trillion on two wars under the guise of liberating them then we should be able to "help our own people" here at home.
We've always in one form or another had both social welfare and "corporate welfare" programs.
There are those who believe the government is "evil" it should simply stick to protecting it's citizens and preserving the infrastructure of our cities, towns, and highways.
Everyone should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps and government should allow businesses to govern themselves.
Others have advocated abolishing the federal income tax because it's "illegal"
I for one can't imagine what the nation would be like without the FDA, SEC, FDIC, Safety, and other government angencies which came into being AFTER abuses were discovered.
Capitalism (with a heart) is here to stay!
Our nation like it or not is built upon certain Christian principles.
No one is going take Social Security away from seniors.
No one is going to tell a family without income they can't have food stamps. No one is going to refuse a child medical attention because he/she has no insurance.
It's just bad Karma! :-)
The real trick is in finding a way to "balance" capitalism with some so called aspects of socialism.
