Medicare Déjà vu

Same ole' same ole' stuff

JFK Madison Square Garden (May 1962)
"A Rally of 3 Generations"
Part 1

Part 2

The same song they're singing against "Healthcare" today.

President John F. Kennedy wanted Medicare, but Dr. Edward Annis opposed single payer health care for the elderly.

The night after JFK held the Medicare rally in Madison Square Garden, the AMA rented the empty Garden for Dr. Annis to deliver his rebuttal, opposing "socialized" medicine for the elderly.
