PSA-170214-Did You Know?

I have seen too many of my friends posting negative comments on Facebook about Republicans, and President Trump taking their Social Security benefits away. The implication is that the Republicans will be the bad guys who leave us hanging out to dry. The brief history below timelines all the changes to the Social Security law from the inception. After you read this ask yourself which party is the most likely to remove your benefit?

Your SS Card – did you know?
History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Just in case some of you 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.

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!
