President Lyndon B. Johnson (left) signed Medicare, a health insurance
program for elderly Americans, into law. At the bill-signing ceremony,
which took place at the Truman Library in Independence,
Missouri,
former President
Harry Truman (seated right) was enrolled as Medicare’s
first beneficiary receiving the first Medicare card.
         

Johnson wanted to recognize Truman, who, in 1945, had become the first
president to propose national health insurance, an initiative that was
opposed at the time by Congress.
