    Social Security

    SOCIAL SECURITY:

    Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the
    Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

    1.) That participation in the Program would be
    completely voluntary,

    2.) That the participants would only have to pay
    1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into
    the Program,

    3.) That the money the participants elected to
    put into the Program would be deductible from their
    income for tax purposes each year,

    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,

    5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees
    would never be taxed as income.

    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 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 SSI Social Security
    payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments
    to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

    Then, after doing all this lying and thieving and
    violation of 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!

    Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during
    this 2004 election year!

    If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
    awareness will be planted and maybe good changes
    will evolve.

    How many people can YOU send this to?

    Keep this going clear up through the 2004 election!!
    We need to be heard!


    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    But almost every single bit of it is incorrect. Why would you want to share that?

    Did you actually read the post that you linked to? Or just see that it said "FALSE" all over and thought it to be factual?

    A lot of what he says is spin ...

    Did you actually attempt to verify any of the so-called facts presented in the original post? A lot of what it presents is outright lies.

    Even if all those facts were true... the choice is going to be between Bush and Kerry. The choice is very clear to me. This country needs a change of administration.
