Pelosi Statement on the 47th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid


Location: Washington, DC

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in recognition of the 47th anniversary of the creation of Medicare and Medicaid:

"Forty-seven years ago, Democrats created Medicare and Medicaid; over nearly half a century, we have sustained them; now and into the future, we will protect them."

"Democrats believe that Medicare is a bedrock promise: after a lifetime of work, seniors deserve the security Medicare provides. Yet Republicans are determined to end Medicare as we know it, passing plans that turns Medicare from a guaranteed benefit program into a privatized voucher program, ultimately increasing seniors' health care costs by thousands of dollars a year.

"Democrats will defend Medicare from any attempts to end it and ensure it remains strong for seniors today for future generations."
