Statement of Senator John F. Kennedy on the Action of the Finance Committee on Medical Care of the Aged, Washington, DC
August 13, 1960

I think we must make an effort on the floor to broaden the coverage of the bill if it is going to be truly effective in assisting our senior citizens.

The bill should also be tied to social security if the financing is going to be adequate. This is the program to which the Democratic Party is committed.
