I read on internet than many people the USA are adamantly against full government funded health system like they have in Europe because they associate it with socialism and if they accept that soon other socialist things will star to happen. 

I know this is a very stereotypical view, mostly from USA media that for a long time used soviétics as villains. 

For decades, the US has been involved with hot and cold wars that focused around communism, fascism and authoritarianism.  Part of that included a lot of propaganda that equated all of it with the umbrella term 'socialism'.  This had led to generations that view socialism as 'the enemy'.

Thankfully the younger generations have started to learn the various nuances of socialism and see them for the specific economic and political functions they are rather than a symbolic boogeyman.
