subject: Social Security truths

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 his 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 mother returned to earth and
saw what the politicians had done to their programs she would
have burned all of them in hell.

Here is a story I received today regarding the Social Security
Program . 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

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

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 illegal immigrants?

A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Illegal
immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive
Social Security and get 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
Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is, uninformed citizens believe it!

Of course the media won't tell people these historical facts as they prefer historical revision, ..or ignoring the past & having people "believe" that Bush, & the GOP wants to steal everybody's social secirity, & give it to the rich!! :smile:
