The past struggles will reveal one reason the ACA is having a rough time now. The GOP did much to discourage medicare. Prior to 1965, nearly half of the elderly had no health insurance and many others had inadequate coverage. ( SOUND FAMILIAR ) Medicare was enacted to help assure that virtually all citizens age 65 or older would have health care coverage and changes and adjustments have been made through the years. Seniors love medicare who are the most vulnerable to illness and it also covers those young and disabled. Ronnie Reagan meanwhile, warned that subsidized medicine would curtail Americans' freedom" Reagan warns that if his listeners do not stop the proposed medical program, "behind it will come other government programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country until one day as Norman Thomas said we will wake to find that we have socialism." (exactly what the GOP-TP worries about us going to "socialism" )
