    FILE - In this Aug. 14, 1935, file photo President Franklin Roosevelt signs the Social Security Bill in Washington. In 1935 Americans struggle to pay for medical care amid the Great Depression. Roosevelt favors creating national health insurance, but decides to push for Social Security first. He never gets the health program passed. But his Social Security bill will provide old age pensions and unemployment insurance. From left are: Chairman Doughton of the House Ways and Means Committee; Sen. Wagner, D-N.Y, co-author of the bill, Secretary Perkins, Chairman Harrison of the Senate Finance Committee, Rep. Lewis, D-Md., co-author of the measure. (AP Photo/File)

    A protester sleeps in front of Parliament and the Council of Ministers building in Sarajevo, March 20, 2012. Muslim, Serb and Croat military veterans who fought each other in the Bosnian war of the 1990s joined ranks on Tuesday and threatened to go on hunger strike unless the government paid their pensions under the long-delayed 2012 budget. Some 1,750 older soldiers were forced to retire as part of Bosnia's efforts to build a unified army after the 1992-95 war. The government promised them pensions ahead of a general election in October 2010 but has never paid them. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: POLITICS MILITARY CIVIL UNREST SOCIETY)
