Healthcare Back in the Day

Recently I’ve been inventorying a bunch of old Golden Age comics that I inherited from my father, and last night I happened to run across an ad for Tootsie Rolls from a 1941 issue of Feature Comics. So for your amusement, ladies and gentlemen, I present “Healthcare in the 40s.” Enjoy.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
