On September 6 President Harry S. Truman sent to the Congress an outline of the executive and legislative program which he considered desirable. He concluded his presentation:
“I shall shortly recommend a national health program to provide adequate medical care for all Americans and to protect them from financial loss and hardships resulting from illness and accident. I shall also communicate with the Congress with respect to expanding our social security system and improving our program of education for our citizens.”
