Truman at his side, uses the last of many pens to complete the signing of the Medicare Bill into law at ceremonies at the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri. John signed Medicare for people age 65 and older and Medicaid for the poor into law. His legendary arm-twisting and a Congress dominated by his fellow Democrats succeeded in creating the kind of landmark health care programs that eluded his predecessors.

There's federal money for colleges, but they can't discriminate against women in the classroom or athletics. Federal cash comes with strings. Now 26 states are telling the Supreme Court that President Barack Obama's health care overhaul goes too far in requiring a Medicaid expansion. The justices' decision will have implications far beyond health care. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer, File)

    FILE - In this Nov. 30, 2011 file photo, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius participates in an roundtable discussing health information technology and job creation at Cuyahoga Community College, in Cleveland. Texas is among several states where Republican-controlled legislatures have voted to cut off Planned Parenthood?s funding. Gov. Rick Perry pledged last week to find state money to keep the program afloat, but he hasn't offered specifics. Sebelius said Friday, March 9, 2012, that the federal funding would be phased out this year because the Texas law violates federal Medicaid regulations requiring that women be allowed to choose a qualified health-care provider. Perry disputes that claim, saying Medicaid rules give states the right to determine which clinics are qualified. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)

    In this Feb. 28, 2012 photo, Madeline Hutchinson speaks during an interview at her home in Salem, Ore. Pregnant with her seventh child and desperate to kick a methamphetamine habit, Hutchinson turned to a program from the local Medicaid provider that connected her with a mentor and other support that helped her stay off drugs and give birth to a healthy boy.  Emmanuel, now 2, was born drug-free and is the only one of her children still in her custody. But Hutchinson?s health provider can?t get reimbursed for much of the treatment she credits with saving her life, keeping her healthy and protecting the health of her child. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
