WHO WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO BE ENROLLED IN MEDICARE?
From THE WISE GEEK
Former United States President Harry Truman was the first person enrolled in Medicare.
He was enrolled by President Lyndon Johnson during the ceremony in which President Johnson signed Medicare into law in 1965.
How fitting since President Truman was the first President to introduce legislation to try to enact universal health care. 60 years later, President Obama signed The Affordable Care Act into law.
Thanks Aunt Sue, That is pretty interesting.
