JFK wanted a national healthcare system for our older citizens. He even appeared on national TV to promote the campaign in 1962. I’m certain JFK would have seen his legacy if he hadn’t been brutally assassinated.
When VP Lyndon B. Johnson took over as President, he continued the work JFK started, and on July 30, 1965, Medicare became the law of the land.
Many changes have been made to Medicare over the last 50 years. And today, it’s still “a work in progress.”
