77 Years After It Became Law, Social Security Keeps 20 MILLION Americans Out Of Poverty

Via: Think Progress

Today marks the 77th anniversary of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act into law, creating arguably America’s most successful social program.

“We can never insure one hundred percent of the population against one hundred percent of the hazards and vicissitudes of life, but we have tried to frame a law which will give some measure of protection to the average citizen and to his family against the loss of a job and against poverty-ridden old age.”

– President Franklin Delano Roosevelt – August 14, 1935

“Quotes of the Day”

“The president’s campaign has put out a campaign that’s talking about me and attacking me.

I think it’s just demeaning to the nature of the process, particularly when we face the kinds of challenges we face.”

-Mittens Ronmey

“Are you crying?

Are you crying?

Are you crying?

There’s no crying, there’s no crying in baseball! 

Rogers Hornsby was my manager, and he called me a talking pile of pigs!

And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game!

And did I cry?

NO!

NO!”
