Explain Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society; include the establishment of Medicare

  1. What was the “Great Society” – Domestic  policies created and passed to make his “Great Society” possible
  2. What is Medicare how is it funded, who does it take care of

In Johnson’s Great Society, he wanted to end poverty, fix the cities, give equal education, and protect our environment. To get to this goal he passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He also develop Medicare which pulls a little bit of money from general taxes and give it to the elderly and the disabled.

Reflection: I learned that Johnson was the one who developed Medicare, which is still in use today.
