Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

Happy Birthday Medicare!

On this date in 1965, President Johnson (who actually had a substantial mandate for sweeping change) signed Medicare and Medicaid into law. My great hope is that life truly does begin at 40 for these two public healthcare programs. Thanks to the Democratic vision of a cooperative and strong America, the poor and the elderly in our country have had some access to the abundance of our healthcare resources. Taking this philosophy to the next level may not be easy, but it is simple. We are Democrats and we want guaranteed healthcare for all Americans.

America, this is your future!
