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

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. 

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 decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants? 

Jimmy Carter
 and the Democrat Party. 
Immigrants moved into this country, 
and at age 65, 
began to receive Social Security payments! The 
Democrat 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 low information citizens believe

There is no political party in this country called "the Democrat Party."

Just saying.

Be grateful you have Social Security. The Republican Party simply wants to do away with it, remember?
