    Franklin Delano. Roosevelt
    32nd. President, Democrat
    Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945
    GO TO HERE !
    Our Social Security
    Franklin Delano. Roosevelt (Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945), a Democrat, introduced 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:
    ----------THEN---------------------------------------------------

    Dwight David Eisenhower
    34th. President, Republican,
    Term Of Office: January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961
    If I recall correctly, 1958 is the first year that Congress, not President Eisenhower, 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 controlledCongress.
    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.
    -------------WORSE STILL------------------------------------------------

    Lyndon Baines Johnson 36th. President,Democrat
    Term Of Office: November 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969
    Question: Which Political Party took Social Security from the Independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

    Answer: It was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat,Term of Office: November 22,1963 to January 20, 1969) and the democratically Controlled House and Senate.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Question: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax Deduction for Social Security
    (FICA) withholding?
    Answer: The Democratic Party.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    William Jefferson Clinton
    (Bill Clinton)
    42nd. President
    Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001

    Albert Arnold Gore, Jr.
    (Al Gore)
    45th. Vice President
    Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001
    Question: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
    Answer: The Democratic Party, with Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (Al Gore) [Vice President Term of Office: January 10, 1993 to January 20, 2001] casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote asPresident of the Senate, while he was Vice President of= the US ....
    ------------------THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL'S BACK !!-------------------------------------------------

    James Earl Carter, Jr
    (Jimmy Carter)
    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 PARTYGAVE 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.

    Sounds a lot like the Health Care stuff ... " I won't sign it if it raises the National Debt by a single dime..."

    Sure....

    Remember a special report back when Tom Brokaw was still on the nightly news about immigrants and social security. According to him, an immigrant, once sponsored, could emmigrate to the U.S. and within 12 months begin to receive $428 a month from social security without having even worked. This was back in the '90s, it's probably $1000 by now. Heck, my Mom was getting $171 a month when she died in 1994. Some socialist program.

    Hang on boys its going to be a rough ride. Gov took half my SS because I retired from the State. If I knew that before hand I would have planned things differently.

    You better believe there will be "means testing".
    If you got an education, worked hard all your life, made sacrifices( you didn't buy the BIG house in the gated community, you didn't buy the BIG truck, or the Lexus, you didn't go on "fun cruises..."...instead, you saved, invested wisely..maybe took a few chances and have reached your "golden years" with a decent sized retirement portfolio...YOU WON'T GET SQUAT. YOU don't NEED any of THE GOVERNMENT'S MONEY...(Notice how easily the money you paid all your life...into Rossevelt's corrupt PONZI SCHEME...has now "morphed" into being the GOVERNMENT'S MONEY). In the coming years...watch for the "demonization" in the Big Media outlets of people who are comfortably retired on their OWN initiative...and who have the audacity to also collect Social Security benefits they DON'T NEED..!!!!! There will be a new "class warfare" begun in the bowels of the White House to make it politically popular to institute a "means test" "for the people"...mmm.mmm.mmm.
