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.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
