Martha D Young 1 month ago on Paul Wellman: Single-payer system is way to go

Medicare and Medicaid were created during the presidency of Lyndon Johnson in 1965. Sadly, funding those two important programs has become a political football (nightmare?).

Martha D Young 1 month, 1 week ago on Jim Dudley: Rearranging the deck chairs

Martha D Young 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Cases of mumps in Colorado climbing, nearly 150 Steamboat students not immunized

The MMR vaccine did not exist either when my husband and I were young, nor when our three children were young. We all suffered through what were thought to be normal childhood diseases, specifically measles, mumps and chicken pox. It would have been a huge blessing for all of us to have had the vaccines available during our childhoods.
