In 1962, before Medicare and Medicaid got going, overall health spending (Medicare, Medicaid, VA, government employees health insurance, etc.) amounted to 2% of all federal outlays. By 1992, it was up to 17%. This year, it will be around 28%. The White House last year projected it would top 30% in a couple of years.
