History Lesson on Social Security
“Borrowed” from Chuck Z. at the outstanding From My Position…………………..On The Way.
Just in case some of you didn’t know this.
People 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 1980s expressly 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.
Franklin Roosevelt, (Six worst letters in American History are FDR and TVA) a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary, (No longer Voluntary)
Since many have paid into FICA for years and are receiving a Social Security check every month –and then finding that they are getting taxed on 85% of the money they 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?
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
Immigrants move into this country, and at age 65, begin to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they might have 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!
Betcha didn’t know that one, eh boys and girls!
And I was brought up to be a “good democrat?” Yeah. Right.
