Larson Statement on 82nd Anniversary of Social Security
Hartford, CT – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the anniversary of Social Security:
“Yesterday we recognized the 82nd anniversary of the signing of the Social Security Act into law by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Social Security is the nation’s insurance program,” said Larson. “It has provided a foundation of economic security for generations of Americans insuring against the loss of income in old age, disability, or the death of a loved one. These are benefits that have been earned by working Americans who contribute to the system through every paycheck. Social Security has made this country a better place for its citizens and I am committed to ensuring that it stays strong for another 82 years and beyond. That is why I am proud to be the author of the Social Security 2100 Act, which expands its benefits and keeps the system solvent through the century.”
