Why don't we ever hear this from the GOP? Ahhh yes, because they hate the black man and they hate anything to do with his name. Well Social Security had it's problems getting people registered as well..Bigger problems. Much bigger problems.
Take a look. This remarks are from the History of Social Security right off their site.
Personnel policy, as is well known, ran into difficulty at times. And at times it cost the Board much criticism in high places; large cuts in appropriations and for a time a material reduction in the salary of the board's top administrative official. In the main, however, the policy "stayed put" and it was followed soon by a board action placing all of its officials and employees from top to bottom under civil service. And then in 1937 and 1939 the Social Security Act was amended to extend successively the personnel policies of the board itself to all state-administered social security programs in which the federal government participated.ACA? Well the doubters and haters think it should be without glitch. Ha !!! The GOP never did know much about history except the parts they rewrite about St. Ronnie. He I believe would even be shouted down today. LEARN SOMETHING MEATHEAD REPUBLICANS. If the website had gone off without a hitch you would have hollered , it was a Kenyan plot from the beginning. The Muslim Brotherhood had it planned all along. This would be their talking point.
The law was passed in 1935 and by 1937, there were all kinds of glitches.. They were worked out and served the people well.
Immediately we began to learn the facts of administrative life. What would be the operating relationship between the Washington staff and the regional offices? What relationship between the heads of the bureaus in Washington and the regional director, especially with respect to the bureau's representative in the regional office? We developed Administrative Order No. 11 and during my something over three years with the board, we rewrote it four times as new problems developed and new personalities clashed. After 25 years Administrative Order No. 11 is still not the law of the Medes and Persians. And we learned quickly that the easiest thing in the world to do is to establish a regional office and the most difficult thing imaginable is to get rid of one.Doubters and haters then and doubters and haters now... Not much has changed. This is nothing new. This is just being screamed louder via technology. If left to the republicans we would never have had a man on the moon, an internet, or cell phones.
With the organizational structure set we began the strenuous, difficult and all important task of staffing the agency. It was an urgent task since the program was scheduled to begin functioning January 1, 1936. The states had to develop legislation for compliance and develop state plans to be submitted to the board. Federal standards had to be "spelled out" and certain operating precedents established, while more than 40 million individual workers under old-age insurance had to be registered. Tabulating machinery had to be leased, space in which to work acquired and people with the necessary "know-how" to do the job had to be employed.
You cannot move forward while your hand is in the cookie jar pushing a horse and buggy backwards.
Have you ever noticed there are no donkeys at a circus but plenty of elephants and rarely any safety net.
