Father of Social Security

"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
Roosevelt upon signing the
Social Security Act.
