Transcript Can Security Be Guaranteed? Left: Senator Harry F. Byrd (D- VaJ said that it has been impossible to devise a federal system of disability which would be abuse- proof. Right: Doctor Elmer Hess, President of the American Medical Association, pointed out that a program of disability benefits will be all but impossible to administer. WIDE WORLD PHOTO %>. security cannot be guaranteed, claim critics of the Social Security system. They maintain that putting the government in the insurance business foretells an all-inclusive, socialistic government under which the citizen will of necessity forfeit liberty for security. Such views are expressed below. Seven score and nineteen years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty . . . ancl then along came Social Security in 1935," was tlie recent barbed comment of one critic, averring that the entire system was, from the outset, a "declaration of dependence" — of sorts. Then, to add insult to amendment (1939, 1946, 1950, and 1954), complain other critics, along came House Bill 7225, which embodied additional changes in the Social Security system. President Eisenhower, at a news conference before his signing of thc bill, stated lie thought it "unwise" to saddle the Social Security system with "something I don't think should be there." Opponents of the revised program are saying that too long has Congress been viewing the system as the world's Page 12 best field of political hay. Moreover, critics are saying that an unastigmatic scrutiny of the system will reveal that it is nothing short of a high water mark in a socialistic flood, said flood being pumped out of Washington disguised as humanitarianism.1 Having the original Social Security program foisted upon them was bad enough, claim foes of the system, but now the present Big-Brother-knows- best legislation is indeed a bitter "bill" to swallow. It has been pointed out that enthusiastic socialistic centralizers are well aware that Social Security is part and parcel of the Marxian design; and, if the trend continues, that there will be an ever-increasing "compulsory" projection of government into the life of every citizen.2 Few will agree that the phrase, "universal compulsory cover age for everybody for everything.
