FW: Your Social Security

Please share with everyone
               Your Social Security

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some
older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check
out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to
your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's
what .and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat of
Republican.  Facts are Facts!!!

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program.  He  promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
I nto the Program would be deductible from
Their income for tax purposes each year,

4.) That the money the participants put into the
Independent "Trust Fund" rather than into the
General operating fund, and therefore, would
Only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other
Government program, and,

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees
Would never be taxed as income.

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
Now receiving a Social Security check every month --
And then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
The money we paid to the Federal government to "put
Away" -- you may be interested in the following:


Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from t he
Independent "Trust Fund" and put it into the
General fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson a nd the democratically
Controlle d House and Senate.


Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
Deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

---------------------------------- --

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the
"tie-breaking" deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the US


Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving
Annuity payments to immigrants?


A: That's right!
Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
Began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democ ratic Party gave these payments to them,
Even though they never paid a dime into it!

-------------- --------------------------

Then, after  violating the original contract (FICA), the
Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want
to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
Awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
Evolve.  Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully
Sure of what isn't so.

But it's worth a try.  How many people can
YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.


A government big enough to give you everything you want, is
strong enough to take everything you have.
   -Thomas Jefferson


All elected officials should be put on trial for their abuse of
we the people.

Regardless the party, stop re-electing people with bad track records.

Forward please,
