Reed talks to Chamber about Medicare

June 6, 2011

Reed harkened back to the early 1960s, before the Medicare law was passed, telling the business group that, “when you would go to a friend’s house and you would see at least one grandparent in the front room on a hospital bed, getting health care.” That is what health care was like for senior citizens back then, he said.
