Social Security & Civil Rights Act
Social security is primarily a social insurance program providing social protection or protection against socially recognized conditions, including poverty, old age, disability, unemployment and others. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States that outlawed major forms of discrimination against African Americans and women, including racial segregation. /5

wel, Rand (as in Ayn Rand) Paul is wrong when he wants to abolish Medicare and Social Security and the Civil Rights Act of 1964
you know Rand Paul wants to get rid of Social Security and Medicare and the public accomadations clause of the Civil Rights act
What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, Senator. Because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.”
Clean Air/Water Act, Social Security, Civil Rights Act, but of course, these are all evil tyrannies on my freedumb.
Liberals freed the slaves, started the FDA, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Federal Reserve, Civil Rights Act(s), EPA,
The things being said about the are the same things that were said about Social Security, Medicare, & Civil Rights Act
Timothy Franklin- The Republican s have historically been against anything that would help “The Least Of These”. Last week I heard a Republican Congressmen justify cutting twenty billion dollars out of food aid to women and children with biblical scripture. The Republican Party has fought against Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment Insurance, Workers Rights, Women’s Rights, *** Rights, The Fair Housing Act, The 1964 Civil Rights Act, 1965 Voting Rights Act. Early Childhood Education, Public Education, wall street reform, a livable wage and consumer protection. Republicans have blocked all attempts to get jobs legislation through congress, they have spent over a billion dollars on propaganda convincing millions of Americans that healthcare for all Americans is somehow an assault on their freedoms and the Black guy in the Whitehouse is evil and the sum of all white fears. The sad part of all of this, tens of millions of Americans sent the republicans to congress to do all of the above.
You might as well declare Social Security, Medicare, or the 64 Civil Rights Act unconstitutional. Striking the VRA is unfathomable madness.
PBO: "..we have a lot to be proud of on Presidents' Day. From Medicare and Social Security to the Civil Rights Act and the Peace Corps.."
Vote for Romney/Ryan if you agree: --it's fine to reshape the Supreme Court for the next 25 years, having Roe v. Wade eliminated, the Civil Rights Act gutted, and all environmental regulation thrown out. --it's OK for you to be denied health insurance because you have Asthma, Diabetes, or any other pre-existing condition. --you and nobody else deserves affordable health care, and that the medical industry should keep on bankrupting millions of people. --it's fine for people under the age of 55 to have Medicare taken away from them. --privatizing Social Security would work out great. --Medicaid should be taken over by the states. --you deserve Romney's disdain as one of those good-for-nothing 47 per-centers. --the federal government should take away abortion as an option, so that a young girl raped and impregnated by her father should be forced by the government to give birth to that child. --we should get rid of Planned Parenthood, even though millions of women rely on it for a long list of health care is ...
Boy do we have short memories - don't forget who established these programs: FDIC, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Civil Rights Act, NLRA, OSHA . the list goes on and on.
I don't usually get involved with political discussions but after doing some research about the contributions of each of our political parties I felt the need to post some of my findings. True, the Republican Party is very vocal about their contributions but after doing research on those that may affect each of us I realized that when compared, just one really seems to get the job done. The Republican Party has given us Brown vs Brown, Emancipation and the National Park Service. Those contributions by the Democrats are: Social Security: Medicare: Civil Rights Act; Medicaid: Minimum Wage: Unemployment Compensation; G.I. Bill; School Lunch Program; Child Labor Laws: 40 hour work week; Fair Play Act; Medican Leave Act; Lilly Ledbetter Act; Clean Air Act; Affordable Healthcare Reform Act; Clean Water Act; New Deal; and the list goes on. Since the Kennedy Administration Democrats have held office for 23 years with 42 million jobs having been created. Republicans have held office for 28 ...
When Romney wants to eliminate some deductions that means people will pay more in taxes, to me that is raising taxes which the other side of his mouth he said he wouldn't do. Trickle down government built the TVA, Hoover Dam, interstate highway system, passed Civil Rights Act for the whole country, created Social Security, Medicare, Voting Rights Act; in other words, stuff the states can't do.
I paid into Social Security, Medicare and pension. But now I'm a moocher. As for building it, I benefitted from Civil Rights Act.
I think Ike was really a Democrat in his ideology, but because of so many years of Democratic rule, he refused an offer from the Democrats and felt he would have a better chance of winning with the Republicans. Hoover did such a negative job on America, there were Democrats in control from the end of Hoover's administration until Nixon in 1972. Just think of all the landmarks we had during that time such as the Civil Rights Act, WPA, CCC, Inter-state Highway System, Technology and Science revolution that resulted in landing a man on the moon , Social Security, Medicare , and many others, some of them mentioned in Ike's quote. There is no comparison to Ike the "Republican" and Mitt the Republican.
I have the fortune-- or misfortune-- of remembering the 1964 election in vivid detail. Lyndon Johnson, who had succeeded the assassinated John Kennedy, was opposed by Sen Barry Goldwater of Arizona. Sen Goldwater was a sincere and frank man, and truly charming. He and Kennedy were in fact close friends. But Goldwater had contrarian views: he opposed Social Security, and remarked that if his sons would not take care of him in his old age, he would "horsewhip them." This frankness betrayed a corresponding naivete, made even worse by his followers. The core group was the "John Birch Society," named for what it denoted as the first US victim of the cold war. The trouble was that the BIrchers were truly demented. Some of their positions: Chief Justice Earl Warren was an extremist who had to be impeached. Former President Eisenhower was a Soviet agent. Social Security and the proposed 1964 Civil Rights Act were unconstitutional. The fluoridation of drinking water was a communist plot to destroy our childr ...
It's an election year and I thought about making a list of all the things I hate about "big nanny" government so here goes: National parks, monuments, forests, wildlife refuges, seashores. Interstate highways, land grants to railroads, canals. The FAA, FEMA, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid The Merrill acts. The Civil Rights act, the Voting Rights Act. The FDA. Federal student loans, SBA, FDIC. The GI Bill. NASA, NOAA. The FCC. OSHA. The ban on assault weapons (I am a Browning after all and want to hunt deerwith a 50 calibre assault rife). Getting rid of the NTASB is a swell idea. Who needs TARP and the Federal Reserve? The post office? Selective Service? The EPA and consumer products safety administration? National science foundation, national academy of arts and PBS? Well, that's only a partial list. Glad to get it off my chest!! Be sure to vote!
I just want to point out a few things brought to you by Democrats: Social Security, GI Bill of Rights, Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Medicare. The Tea Party takes its name from the Boston Tea Party when rebels or liberals tried their best to make big change in the way they were governed. Republicans use conservative like some kind of banner blessed by God. I believe God has blessed all of the USA not just one party. I wonder just what the Republicans want to conserve or preserve, how far back do they want to go, all the way back before womens rights? I am just saying I am a liberal and proud of it. It's time to question who got you what and what do you need from your government. Support our troops and vote.
Republicans passed the Civil Rights Act. They support Social Security, but understand it is not going to survive as is.
As one of those fortunate individuals with comprehensive employer-paid insurance, I am free of health care worries. However, I applaud the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Health Care Act. As the NY Times states, "By allowing the march toward universal coverage to continue, the court kept within sight a goal that has eluded legislators and presidents – including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton – for generations." I am old enough to remember the significant battle in Congress over Medicare and the Civil Rights Act with votes divided by party lines. The Americans with Disabilities Act was pulled from the Civil Rights Act, and only implemented in 1990, because of party lines. My parents also talked of the battle over Social Security, again on party lines. It seems to me that this Country stands best when it protects its citizens disregarding party lines. We are the only wealthy country without universal health care. We still ...
The faction who opposed the creation of Social Security in the 1930s went on to oppose Medicare and the US Civil Rights Act of 1964. And the US Voting Rights Act of 1965. What are they up to now?
The legality of Social Security and Medicare must be reversed, just like slavery was abolished in 1865, according to Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. “You talk a lot about the Constitution,” Fox News’ Chris Wallace noted Sunday. “You say Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid are all unconst...
Conservative legal scholar thinks Social Security, Medicare, and the Civil Rights Act are rooms in "imaginary mansion."
