Kennedy's big loss on Medicare - the roll call


Having got the Voteview system up (earlier), I turn up the July 17 1962 roll call (#297) on the King-Anderson bill I discussed on February 5.

Of course, strictly speaking, the vote was not on King-Anderson. As described by Peter Corning
On June 29, after several weeks of discussion, Senators Anderson and Javits offered a compromise Medicare bill, incorporating some of the features of both the King-Andepson and Javits bills. They presented it as a floor amendment to a House-passed welfare measure (H.R. 10606).

Jacob Javits' bill (S 2664) was a compromise offering a private insurance alternative to a social security scheme for healthcare for the elderly.

Roll Call 287 was on a motion of Robert Kerr (D-OK) to table this amendment. Republicans voted for 31-5, Democrats against 43-21: of Confederate senators, only Olin Johnston (SC), Estes Kefauver and Albert Gore, Sr (TN) and Ralph Yarborough (TX) voted against.

'Olin the Solon' Johnston, I don't understand: the other three were noted liberals.

The vote on passage of Johnson's Medicare bill is strikingly different, of course: Dems 55-7 for, GOP 14-13 against. The Dem holdouts are Holland, Ellender, Eastland, Stennis, Ervin, Harris Robertson and Harry Byrd. Richard Russell and even Herman Talmadge joined the joy train.

[The HTML clearly needs working on - like Mrs Truman (according to the story) having taken years to get Harry to say manure, be thankful it's not as bad as it was!]
