Here ya go conservatives! For a full ten minutes you can close your eyes and imagine that the greatest republican politician of all time is still with us, and weighing in on the healthcare debate!

Seriously though...

This is from 1961 and part of the American Medical Association's 'Operation Coffee Cup' which was a campaign to kill Medicare in the 50's and 60's.

As part of the plan, doctors' wives would organize coffee meetings in an attempt to convince acquaintances to write letters to Congress opposing the program. The operation received support from Ronald Reagan, who in 1961 produced the LP record Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine for the AMA, outlining arguments against what he called "socialized medicine". This record would be played at the coffee meetings.
