Happy 45th Birthday, Medicare!
[I'm stickying this to celebrate hipparchia's return, so but and see also a little night music also. -- lambert]
On July 30, 1965, Medicare was signed into law. Thank you, LBJ.
For Medicare's 45th birthday, you can attend an event in your area, if there is one. I see Phoenix AZ, home to bunches and bunches and bunches of senior citizens [alive and kicking, in part because of Medicare] is having a teach-in [somebody should invite President Obama].
If you can't make it to any of the planned events, you can always call/write/fax your Congresscritters and tell them you want Medicare For All - that it's not too late for them to do the right thing. If nothing else, email your Senators, Representatives, and the President a link to Dr Quentin Young's Rx on Medicare's Birthday: Expand it to All. Yo, Prez-- you do remember Dr Quentin Young, right?
