*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 or Republican.
Facts are Facts!!!
Our Social Security
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1.) That participation in the Program would be
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,
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, would remain in the “Trust 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:

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,

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn
around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!
AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
