In today’s edition of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Devon Herrick, a Senior Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, joins managing editor Kenneth Artz to talk about the 50th anniversary of Medicare, the federal/state health care program for the elderly.
Artz and Herrick discuss how increases in life expectancy and the number of people signing up for the program has grown well beyond the scope off what Congress intended in 1965. They also address other problems experts believe the program could have going forward.
