Past presidents who attempted to pass health care reform include, but not limited to, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Carter, Clinton and now Obama. Yes, two GOP presidents, Eisenhower and Nixon attempted to do it.


Medicare passed during Lyndon Johnson's administration; that was a huge accomplishment. The Social Security amendment was signed into law July 30, 1965.

The attempt to pass a national health care plan dates back to Teddy Roosevelt's 1912 US Presidential campaign. Some European countries had already implemented national health coverage and the equivalent of Social Security pensions by then.
