Think It Does Not Matter Republician
Or Democrat?? Read and Weep..

History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

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 1980sexpressly 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.


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,
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 Gorecasting 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 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.
But it's worth a try.
How many people can YOU tell about this?

So true! Maybe we need to copy this and send it to e-mail friends. The sad part is ~ not many are that interested. We, as Christians need to aroused and do our part. Thanks for the post.

This year less FICA is removed from paychecks, giving people a 'break'. This was voted on last year under a Democratic controlled congress. So, less money going into Social Security, which we were already told was going to be insolvent within a few years. If so, why the cut?

It was my understanding that money taken from SS for the general fund was replaced by government bonds -- making SS one of the Fed's debt holders. If so, probably after commitments to China.

(PS - thanks for the prayers!)

I know and they are raising the debt ceiling again, duh, how many think that raising our credit card limits will help us pay off debts...0000000 no one believes their actions, I say kick them all out of leadership, and let each state do for itself, that would eliminate most of the bureaucrats in Washington, and I say good ridden...
Amos 8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
4:10-And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

AMEN Barbara.... I knew all of this... I also know that we have a President now who wants to turn us into a secular, govt.-controlled country.. That's Socialism in a nutshell --or even Communism. It scares me to death...

The sad thing is that most Americans don't keep up with what is truly going on ---and they still like Obama and his funny jokes and his LIES to the people... If we don't get him out of office and continue to change Congress --like we did in 2010, this country is in deep deep trouble (already is)...

Thanks for a GREAT post.
Hugs,
Betsy
