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.


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!

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

Do you really want the democrats in charge of health care?

It's actually twice that amount. Employers calculate their cost of operation. One of their expenses is the matching SS payment. That is considered when employee cost is calculated. It is given the same consideration as employee salary.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

Re: History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

I am a conservative in my decision making, but as it relates to politics I think they are all agenda driven. Here is something to think about Democrats include the likes of Sandusky, so what does that say about them? It ends up being a simple twisting the facts for everything the Democratic party does. So it is not uncommon or surprising to see a post from the Democrats point of view.
Now let me be clear, I also think Republicans suck too, just not nearly as bad.

Re: History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

You don't necessarily have to pay Social Security. I have worked my whole life for a salary, definitely not living on dividends, paid my taxes and have only about 3 quarters where I have ever paid any SS taxes, all legally and earned in the US and am a real born in the USA citizen. I just retired, too.
