Congresswoman Beatty Celebrates Social Security's 83rd Anniversary

On August 14, 1935, the Social Security Act was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In honor of Social Security’s 83rd anniversary and as a vice-chair of the House Democratic Caucus’ Seniors Taskforce, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement: 

“For more than eight decades, Social Security has provided hundreds of millions of older Americans and individuals with disabilities the financial stability and support they so desperately need. In fact, today, nearly 50 percent of Social Security beneficiaries rely on the program for a majority of their income. That is why it is more important than ever for Congress to strengthen and improve Social Security—not cut it. As Vice-Chair of the House Democratic Caucus’ Seniors Taskforce, I promise to continue to protect Social Security for today’s seniors and future generations.”
