From The Blog
July 30 marks 50 years since President Johnson signed the Social Security Amendments of 1965 into law. Along with Medicare, the law created Medicaid, the joint state and federal health insurance program for low-income people. In the past 50 years, Medicaid has not only helped countless Americans get the health care they need, it has also served as a reliable source of financial support for states.
