A Question about a ‘Progressive’ Idea

Rather straightforward:

So you take issue with the current U.S. health care system: Why is it considered ‘Progressive’ to nationalize it?

Nationalizing anything is about as non-progressive as it gets. Actual progress in human government was made when America was founded and power was taken away from government and divided with the separation of powers – but for some reason – it is referred to as ‘progressive’ (i.e. making progress) to go back and hand power back to government.

It’s like The Chewbacca Defense. That does not make sense.
