Today, #SocialSecurity turns 85 years old. Now more than ever, we must vigorously defend and safeguard both Social Security and Medicare—our nation’s sacred trusts with senior citizens and retirees. Senior citizens in New Jersey and across the country have worked hard throughout their lives to provide for their families and help build our communities, all while paying into Social Security and Medicare. These critical programs serve as a foundation for economic and healthcare security for millions of older Americans. A commitment was made, and the commitment must be kept. As I have done throughout my time in Congress, I will remain steadfast, working to ensure we deliver on promises made to retired and disabled beneficiaries who have earned, and now rely upon, their Social Security and Medicare benefits.
Congressman Chris Smith marked with 85th anniversary of the establishment of Social Security today with a post on Instagram.
Smith noted the importance of the program to senior citizens and disabled and pledged his steadfast commitment to defending the program as well as Medicare.
