Quotable Quote

"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."

Franklin Roosevelt's Statement on Signing the Social Security Act. August 14,1935
