  1. Our Social Security

    Franklin Delano. Roosevelt

    32nd. President, Democrat

    Terms of Office March 4, 19 33, to April 12, 19 45
    Our Social Security


    Franklin Delano. Roosevelt (Terms of Office March 4, 19 33, to April 12, 19 45), 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:

    Insert by Vincent Peter Render,

    If I recall correctly, 1958 is the first year that Congress voted to remove funds from Social Security and put it into the General Fund for Congress to spend.

    If I recall correctly, it was a democratically Controlled Congress.

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

    39th. President, Democrat

    Term of Office: January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981

    Question: Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?

    AND MY FAVORITE:

    Answer: That's right! James Earl Carter, Jr. (Jimmy Carter) (Democrat, Term of Office: January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981 ) 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. 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.
