Good ole days

Teddy Roosevelt on a national healthcare plan for America:

“The supreme duty of the Nation is the conservation of human resources through an enlightened measure of social and industrial justice. We pledge ourselves to work unceasingly in State and Nation for … the protection of home life against the hazards of sickness, irregular employment and old age through the adoption of a system of social insurance adapted to American use.”

— Theodore Roosevelt (Republican), 1912.
