Dr. Ruiz Statement on the 50th Anniversary of Medicare
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) released the following statement on the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Medicare.
“For half a century Medicare has provided critical health care and security for older Americans across the nation. In Southern California alone, millions rely on Medicare for high-quality, affordable health care in their golden years, helping to provide a healthy and secure retirement. On this, the 50th anniversary of Medicare, let us recommit ourselves to its protection and preservation in the face of many who seek to end the Medicare guarantee and turn it into a voucher program.”
