P.O.P. and NJ One Plan One Nation Rally for Medicare!

August 7, 2012
NJ One Plan One Nation Coalition rallied with Lawrence Hamm and the People’s Organization for Progress (P.O.P.) at the P.O.P. weekly membership and recruitment rally at Broad and Market Streets, downtown Newark on July 28, 2012.The spotlight of the rally was the battle to protect and to strengthen Medicare as the anniversary of its enactment 47 years ago. Medicare, the country’s most successful health plan, was first enacted on July 30, 1965 under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act. It provides comprehensive medical coverage for those 65 and over and those with disabilities. It has recently come under fire by conservatives as being a social program that is too costly. It is likely to be a contentious issue for the 2012 election.
