John F. Kennedy on Social Security
On the whole, however, the 87th Congress, despite its Democratic control, was unresponsive to the president. Kennedy got just 44% of his legislative requests in 1962.
KENNEDY: Mr. Nixon mentioned the problem of our older citizens. I cannot still understand why this Administration and Mr. Nixon oppose putting medical care for the aged under Social Security to give them some security.
