Franklin D Roosevelt (or FDR) is the longest serving president in US history. His 12 years in office spanned two of the 20th Century’s greatest disasters – the Great Depression and the Second World War.
Roosevelt continued to roll out his 'New Deal' reforms. In August 14, 1935, he unveiled the outlines of a basic welfare state with the Social Security Act, guaranteeing an income to Americans over 65-years-old, the law was part of Roosevelt’s sweeping New Deal social reforms.
In a statement Roosevelt delivered when he signed the bill, Roosevelt expressed, “Young people have come to wonder what would be their lot when they came to old age. The man with a job has wondered how long the job would last.” Continuing Roosevelt said, ‘’This Social Security measure gives at last some protection to 30,000,000 of our citizens who will reap direct benefits through unemployment compensation, through old-age pensions and through increased services for the protection of children and the prevention of ill health.”
As for this picture, It has been in a frame in our store on display for over 20 years along with a newspaper letter " To the Draft Dodgers". I don't know if this picture was duplicate put out by the government or what. I also, don't know what newspaper the article is from. One of our customers found it important to keep and give to us before he passed. Great for history buffs.
