    Social Security Information

    Got this today in Email. Thought I would pass it on.




    Social Security information


    Even if you're a Democrat and a hardened Bush basher, this is really something to think about.

    MAINLY FOR THE MIS-INFORMED FOLKS. AND YOUTH

    Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. Its 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 .

    Our Social Security

    Many years ago in Seattle, two wonderful neighbors, Elliott and Patty Roosevelt came to my home to swim on a regular basis. They were a great couple full of laughter and stories that today I continue to marvel at. Both are now deceased, but their stories remain. During the years of our friendship we had many, many discussions about Elliott's parents (President Franklin D. and Eleanor Roosevelt) and how his father and mother never intended for the Social Security and Welfare programs to turn out the way they are today. Elliott used to say that if his parents returned to earth and saw what the politicians had done to their programs they would have burned all of them in hell.

    Here is a story I received today regarding the Social Security Program and I immediately thought of Elliott's comments. I Hope you will read this and think about it.

    ______________________________ _______________

    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 US.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

    AND MY FAVORITE:

    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 doing all this lying and thieving and violating 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!
    ============================== ================

    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.

    Its good that these emails are posted, some of our not so smart members might actually end up sending $35,000 to some poor Nigerian male in exchange for $1,000,000 someday and this will help

    I'm neither democrat or republican but I see a democrat couldn't cross the road here without being mowed down by a republican.

    Hey don't forget Clinton and the Windfall Elimination Provision. Any of you that receive a Police pension and were exempt from social secuirty taxes as the time, even though you're paying them before and after, are going to take a big hit.
