History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

It doesn't matter: if you repeat a lie often enough it will 'become' 'truth'.

History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this and it's easy to check out, if you don't believe it.

Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, “NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION” was removed.

Our Social Security

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

He promised:

That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary; No longer voluntary

That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their Annual Incomes into the Program; Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

 That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year, No longer tax deductible

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,

Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and Spent

 That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

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 the independent

"Trust Fund" and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democrat controlled House and Senate.

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

A: The Democrat Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

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

AND MY FAVORITE:

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

A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democrat Party.

Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments that the Democrat Party so generously gave to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

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

And the worst part about it is that uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.

It's certainly worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to? Actions speak louder than bumper stickers

No private person has a right to complain by suit in court on the ground of
a breach of the United States constitution; for, though the constitution is a contract, he is not a party to it
