Your Social Security Card

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 o
r 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 Social Security number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message 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. It’s 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 we pay 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. It’s 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. But 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 information.


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 U.S.

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.

And think, Congress gives themselves 100% retirement for only serving one term.
