Medicare at 50: Is it working?
from Modern Medicine
"No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine. No longer will illness crush and destroy the savings that they have so carefully put away over a lifetime." With those words, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Medicare legislation into law 50 years ago. It was the culmination of a decades-long effort to make healthcare affordable to the nation's elderly population, and represented the first large-scale government involvement in the nation’s healthcare system — a role that was highly controversial at the time and remains so today.
