(Queens, NY) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the 52nd anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid:

“For 52 years, Medicare and Medicaid have been more than just a safety net – they have provided a lifeline to millions of Americans. With Medicare and Medicaid, the United States made a promise to take care of those who need health care the most – a promise Democrats are fighting each day to see fulfilled. Today, as we celebrate these vital programs, we renew our commitment to oppose any harmful legislation attacking our country’s most vulnerable.”
