    Lesson on Your Social Security Card



    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 anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

    An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" 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 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


    3.) 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


    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,

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


    5.) 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 democratically controlled 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: Jimmy Carter and 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.

    I think alot of people thought Social Security was a good idea at the time..Cuz it was. FDR is probably rolling over in his grave seeing what Social Security and Unions have become.

    That wouldn't be my answer. My answer would be .... when their masters on Wall St told them there was billions of dollars of profits to be made if they could just convert Social Security into privates accounts .

     

    BTW xXRS31NXx"s I won't be able to remember all those x's in your name so I hope you don't take any offense to me calling you Mr X .

    Mr X ...... I always thought the Dems liked to use somebody else's money to pay the bills and the GOP liked to write hot checks to pay the bills or just refuse to pay the bills all together.

    Anyways .. I find the Dems ways of doing business fairer to the lower 98 % .

    PS. I 'paid' for my engineering degrees with baseball and academic scholarships (undergrad) and the GI Bill (grad). Didn't owe a dime at the end of school.

    I was lucky and determined...but mostly lucky.

     

    And I am Jane Fonda.
