50th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid Commemorated in the Senate

Last week, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), along with 44 colleagues, introduced “A resolution commemorating 50 years since the creation of the Medicare and Medicaid Programs,” S.R. 25. In his introductory remarks, Senator Wyden recalled the historical importance of these programs to people, including those with disabilities, stating “Medicare and Medicaid were bipartisan efforts, and the enactment of these programs shows that Congress can craft bipartisan solutions to complex problems. As this new Congress begins, I hope we can use that 50-year-old spirit to strengthen, protect, and improve Medicare and Medicaid to keep that guarantee strong, ensure health care to those who need it most, and protect a program that has been a lifeline to millions of Americans.”
