TR^liC©? Yon already pay taxes
to support a generous federal-state
medical program for those over 65 who need it
Why pay again for a plan that isn’t needed?
Surprised? Chances are you never heard
of the Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Con-
gress in 1960. We call it...Health Op-
portunity Program for the Elderly.
This program enables individual
states, with federal assistance, to guar-
antee to every elderly person who needs
it the health care he or, she requires.
Thousands of people every day are being
helped by its broad benefits.'
. Yet, the supporters of the proposed
Medicare Tax would have you believe
that its passage is urgent..that persons
over 65 are deprived of needed medical
care because they can’t pay for it.
So why pay twice? Find out about
the health program you’re already sup-
porting. For information on health care
for the elderly in your am, ask your doc-
tor or contact your local medical society.
