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
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
anywayand the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.
An old Social Security card with the“NOT FOR
message. 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, No longer Voluntary
2.) That theparticipants 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
3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would bedeductible from their income for tax purposes each year, No longer tax deductible
4.) That themoney 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, Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent
5.) That theannuity payments to the retirees would
never be taxed
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 wepaidto the Federal government to ‘put away’ —you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
AND MY FAVORITE: A: That’s right!
Jimmy Carterand the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country,and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic 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 it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. But it’s worth a try.
