Social Security

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
32nd President
Terms of Office:
March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945
Franklin Delano 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:

to January 20, 1961
1958 is the first year that a democratically controlled Congress, not President Eisenhower, voted to remove funds from Social Security and put it into the General Fund for Congress to spend.

Congress 'logic' at that time was that there was so much money in the Social Security Fund that it would never run out / be used up for the purpose it was intended / set aside for.

James Earl Carter, Jr
(Jimmy Carter)
39th President
Term of Office:
January 20, 1977
to January 20, 1981
Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?

That's right! JAMES EARL CARTER, JR.

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! Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so.  But it's worth a try.  How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
