Social Security Act Birthday

80 years ago today, FDR signed the Social Security Act into law – and it was in large part thanks to a remarkable woman from Massachusetts: Frances Perkins. Coming out of the Great Depression, Frances Perkins was FDR’s Secretary of Labor – the first woman in US history to hold a cabinet position, and a chief architect of the New Deal. God bless Frances Perkins.
FDR and Frances Perkins knew Social Security was about economics, but it was also about our values. It’s about who we are as a people, and what kind of country we are determined to build.

Today, I’m fighting hard to make sure we don’t cut a dime of Social Security benefits. I’m fighting to protect and expand Social Security – and I hope you’ll fight alongside me.
Happy birthday, Social Security – and a special thanks to Frances Perkins—a tough woman with a vision!
