proposed social security has vs proposed social security had
which is the former wrong?


Are we expected to know American history? Do we need to know that The great depression happened after Franklin's tenure, hence we need to use PAST PERFECT.
What am I missing ?
I understand " Argued " being in the simple past tense is the clue here.

Is the sentence below wrong?

We argued yesterday that the proposed law has a high chance of success.

This sentence simply means that we were arguing yesterday about a law which has been proposed but not yet been implemented.

Please share your views.
