History Lesson on Your Social Security Card 

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this.
It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They 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.

An old Social Security card with the 

"NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.
Our Social Security 

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social 
Security (FICA) Program. He promised: 

1.) That participation in the Program would be 
Completely voluntary, 

No longer Voluntary 



2.) That the participants would only have to pay 
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program, 

Now 7.65% 

on the first $90,000 


3.) That the money the participants elected to put 
into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year, 

No longer tax deductible 



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, 

Under Johnson the money was moved to 
The General Fund and Spent 



5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income. 


Under Clinton & Gore 
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed 


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 it? 

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 US 


------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- - 

Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants? 

AND MY FAVORITE: 

A: That's right! 

Jimmy Carter
 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.
 
But it's worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to? 

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers!!!

That's a good lesson in the history of social security and the tax allocation. I did not know that the dems taxed it that bad.
