Supreme Court Health Care History
FILE - In this Aug. 14, 1935, file photo President Franklin Roosevelt signs the Social Security Bill in Washington. In 1935 Americans struggle to pay for medical care amid the Great Depression. Roosevelt favors creating national health insurance, but decides to push for Social Security first. He never gets the health program passed. But his Social Security bill will provide old age pensions and unemployment insurance. From left are: Chairman Doughton of the House Ways and Means Committee; Sen. Wagner, D-N.Y, co-author of the bill, Secretary Perkins, Chairman Harrison of the Senate Finance Committee, Rep. Lewis, D-Md., co-author of the measure. (AP Photo/File)
