It is expected that the House of Representatives will hold one of the most potentially explosive and important votes on Sunday.
Health care is an area of demanding and controversial health care programs, insurance and spending. Medicaid and Medicare are government run programs that account for a large portion of health care cost.
Medicaid began in 1965 under the Social Security ACT under Title XIX. Harry Truman initiated the idea of a national health insurance plan in 1945. Many worried about a “socialized health care” transformation and it wasn’t until 1965 that President Lyndon Johnson signed this plan into law. – Medicaid was initiated along with Medicare.
