Due to the high price of prescription drugs, many Americans buy their medications from foreign pharmacies by crossing the border into Canada and Mexico, or when they travel to another foreign country. Many prescription medications are less expensive in foreign countries, and some medications that require a prescription in the U.S. are available over-the-counter in other countries.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- who has gone to great lengths to hype the supposed dangers of a big government takeover of American health care -- admitted over the weekend that she used to get her treatment in Canada's single-payer system.
"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," Palin said in her first Canadian appearance since stepping down as governor of Alaska. "And I think now, isn't that ironic?"

Fascism is anti-socialist. It is authoritarian but capitalist (although not Laissez-faire).
The guys that coined the term defined it that way. The way the propaganda machine co-opted it and applied it to any and all authoritarian government is incorrect.

And yet you ignore my premise that the only way to solve the problem is finding a way to pay for the high costs instead of finding a way to lower the costs.

Fascism is closer to Capitalism like Socialism is closer to Communism. However Capitalism is not Fascism and Socialism is not Communism. But they are on opposite sides from each other.
