08/12/2005: Happy Birthday...
" Tens of thousands of people across the country are sending out electronic birthday cards today to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the creation of Social Security. Thousands more plan to attend birthday parties - organized by Americans United to Protect Social Security -- this weekend to celebrate the federal government's most successful program. The goal of this outpouring is to stop the president's plan to privatize the system.
The birthday cards, distributed via email by the Campaign for America's Future, feature a photo of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signing legislation creating Social Security on August 14, 1935. The e-card humorously turns the photo into a party, complete with funny hats and noisemakers that appear on Roosevelt and others in the picture. Along with the humor, the e-cards highlight Social Security's accomplishments and invite Social Security's supporters to hundreds of local birthday parties being organized this week and next to protest the Bush privatization plan...."
