Aren't free shots, tests 'socialism?'

To the editor,
Now that Biden won and Trump lost, we have stopped hearing the words that the Biden team are socialists. Well over the last nine months people have been getting FREE COVID tests. And now that the vaccine is being made and sent to states, we are all getting it FREE. So much for the GOP saying socialism is bad or good. Which is it? We pay into Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid with tax dollars. So is this a form of socialism, free shots and tests for all? Your income tax at work. I want us all to get the vaccine and testing for free ... a form of socialism. Medicare for all?
