History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Your Social Security Card - did you know?

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.

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: 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!

It's very simple. Any and all democrat policies have NEVER and will NEVER be good for anyone. Democrats aren't the brightest bulbs in the pack but they do all lie constantly and are all very dishonest people so they will say their policies are good.
The truth is if ALL democrats were to suddenly disappear the country would IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT FAIL become a better place in ALL areas, socially economically etc-a utopia.
Democrats have NEVER and WILL NOT EVER contribute anything positive to society. They are all around nasty stupid people.

No Taxes on it
No Limits on what you earn working / (Get Full amt at 62 )
Money to stay in YOUR family (not given out to others)
If family member dies remaining ones Get it too + theirs
Gov't cannot use it or any others
Double the amt given out now ( it is way behind )
Double medicare /medicaid / 100% med & Prescr covered

11:32 is so so right.

WHO in the hell do these slimy "leaders" think they are??
WE put OUR money (TAKEN by force) into a fund and NOW, they will say if you continue to work, we will cut your benefits????
Every now and then "the Tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants...."
Most of the people that are being extorted now will never see a dime of THEIR MONEY.
That used to be called robbery.
Now it's merely an "entitlement" that they are so generously allowing us use. Put THEM on SSI (they have exempted themselves from it). THEIR pension plan is much more princely than the one they force upon "we, the people". Because they are special.
Keep cheering.
