Rep. Wasserman Schultz Celebrates 80 Years of Social Security

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement in honor of the 80th anniversary of Social Security:

“Eighty years ago, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Social Security into law, guaranteeing that millions of our nation’s seniors would no longer live in abject poverty. Over the last century, our nation has built on that promise by keeping Social Security solvent, even during recessions. Unfortunately, some House Republicans have put Social Security’s guarantees at risk, by proposing a raise in the retirement age and privatization of Social Security. On the 80th anniversary of Social Security becoming law, I reaffirm my commitment and that of my Democratic colleagues to protecting the promise of Social Security for the 116,000 beneficiaries in my district, Florida’s 23rd, and millions of beneficiaries in Florida and around the nation.”
