Social Security, How It Got Stolen
 
I got this as an email the other day. The post by richp in the other thread made me remember it. I'm not a history buff when it comes to Social Security but I thought it was a neat shot at the Dems. It is put in quotes but I do not know where it originated, just on of those forwards that move around the web.

Social Security, How It Got Stolen
If there is anyone out there that doesn't know this, this is the best visual presentation I've seen... Don 't be mad at old people, just remember who made the complications when you vote....
Social Security, How It Got Stolen



Franklin Delano. Roosevelt
32nd President, Democrat
Terms of Office: March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945
GOOD TO HERE !>>>>>>>>>>Our Social Security

Franklin Delano. Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the 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 in would go 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 who paid into FICA for years are now receiving a monthly Social Security check and are being taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to 'Put Away'-- you may be interested in the following:

Dwight David Eisenhower
34th President, Republican.
Term Of Office: January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961
Insert by Vincent Peter Render,
If I recall correctly,1958 is the first year that Congress 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 Democratic-Controlled Congress.
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------------------------------------------------

Clinton/Gore
William Jefferson Clinton
( Bill Clinton)

------------------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 Social Security Annuity payments to immigrants?
Answer: That's right! James Earl Carter, Jr. (Jimmy Carter), Democrat, and the Democrat 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 the Fund!



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!

AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100%RETIREMENT FOR SERVING ONLY ONE TERM!!!

Thomas Jefferson
