This is pretty much the core of it. UHC would give workers a ton of leverage and end up driving up wages and lower the profits of major corporations.

There would be overall economic growth because of money going to those that spend it and small business becoming far more viable, but the stock market might slide and for some reason that will be held out as proof that the commie scheme has ruined freedom.
