Biggest Lies About Social Security

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.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Security_number
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 arenow 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?
A: That's right!
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 that uninformed citizens believe it!  If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted in our "low  information" populace and maybe changes will
It's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
