On July 28th, Medicare celebrates its 47th Birthday. Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid are the â€œcrown jewelsâ€ of our national social insurance system. Despite widespread public support, politicians in Wasshington DC want to privatize or outright eliminate Medicare, and severely cut Medicaid and Social Security..Â WA State Alliance for Retired Americans (WASARA) & Physicians for a National Healthcare Program-Western Washington (PNHP) will join with others to call for the protection of these programs.
