Durst: Say What?

On his Facebook wall, Idaho Sen. Branden Durst, D-Boise, tells of a brief conversation with anti-Obamacare individuals after today's first meeting on the top of health insurance exchange:

"While leaving the 1st hearing on state-run health insurance exchange, I was approached by some folks that started talking to me about their view on what they called "legalized theft." When I told them that I didn't believe that everything about 'Obamacare' was bad, they quickly stated, 'Well, thats because you are a socialist.' Say what?!"

Question: What do you say to uberconservative individuals who believe anyone to the left of them is a "socialist"?
