THE WAGNER-MURRAY-DINGELL BILL

THE WAGNER-MURRAY-DINGELL BILL To the Editor:— On Thursday, May 24, I introduced with Senator Murray a bill, S. 1050, entitled "The Social Security Amendments of 1945." The bill provides for "the national security, health and public welfare." Representative Dingell of Michigan introduced a companion bill (H. R. 3293) in the House at the same time. I particularly invite your earnest study of the provisions of the bill relating to health. There is absolutely no intention on the part of the authors to "socialize" medicine, nor does the bill do so. We are opposed to socialized medicine or to state medicine. The health insurance provisions of the bill are intended simply to provide a method of paying medical costs in advance and in small convenient amounts. During the formulation of this bill, we have benefited greatly from the constructive advice and suggestions of practicing physicians, and of physicians in clinical and teaching positions.
