Celebrate Medicare's Anniversary by Improving and Expanding It to All

WASHINGTON - Today, July 30, marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s signing of the Medicare program into law. Dr. Robert Zarr, president of Physicians for a National Health Program, is among those speaking in Washington this morning at a "Medicare turns 50" rally in the Upper Senate Park and, later in the afternoon, at a congressional briefing hosted by Rep. John Conyers Jr.

Medicare, one of our nation’s most valuable and beloved social programs, turns 50 today.
