    • Subject: History 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 1980’s 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.[9]

      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: Wwhich 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
      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. 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.  

       This just is not right, we need to speak out about this.
      Let’s quit letting the government screw us.

        • Great info MC! I'm pretty sure the Dems are evil and should pretty much rot in ** but I also think that about the Repubs who are equally evil. Just in other forms!

          My questions is this:  

          Who is out there to protect MY interests?
          Who is out there wanting to make sure MY money stays MY money?
          Who out there is interested in the welfare of OUR citizens without getting a form of kickback?

          Who in gov’t really cares about US?

        • I do agree both parties are evil the only thing I have to say about the immigrants, if someone is talking you that we are able to get social security  with out had working in this country is not truth. in order to get that money is by paying taxes. there two way to for use to pay the taxes as you know, working here or just doing just taxes at the end of the year and pay because we had not work in that year. It all about quarters they called, every body has to have x number of quarter. I know because I’m an immigrant and I have family’s member who came to this country no to young and they couldn’t get the social security even thou they do work here but could complete the numbers of quarter to qualify.

          An illegal here in california can get welfare,open a bank account usally at bank of america(what a laugh) get loans ect
          An immigrant who pays into ssi can colect it like the rest of us by quarters
          But I think what mary is saying is we have been screwed(sorry for the word)our ssi wasnt suppose to b for gov. Use it was ours

        • I think every president has used the social security to pay for everything from the atomic bomb to highways. They are all guilty. Now they are sweating because the IOUs have to be paid back along with the war for oil.

        • The main concern I have is; our social security is in the hands of untrustworthy people. It has been proven time after time. Now it is in the deficit committee’s hands, one of which is Alan Simpson. Who states, “SSA is like having 310 million “tits” on a milk cow“! I don’t think any of us want that kind on person to balance the budget deficit. Our social security hangs on the edge only because it is the only stable account congress can dip into take out our money and replace it with an IOU. It is a TRUST FUND, Congress needs to look up the definition if they have forgotten what that means.
