Andy Griffith, of timeless Mayberry fame, stars in a new video celebrating the 45th birthday of Medicare, today, July 30, 2010. On this date in 1965 President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare into law.
Griffith, now 84 years old, shares his enthusiasm for Medicare and for the upcoming improvements that will occur over the next several years. These changes include closing the doughnut hole, cheaper prescriptions, free check-ups, and more.
“See what else is new! I think you’re gonna like it!” says Griffith.
Here’s Andy’s video. What fun from one of the most straight-arrow and trustworthy actors in our parents’ generation.
