  • Paying people to put their boots on their throats. Beck’s fans must be chumps indeed.

  • Shouldnt matetr whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts!!!Our Social Security Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the SocialSecurity (FICA) Program. He promised: 1…) That participation in the Program would beCompletely voluntary,No longer Voluntary2.) That the participants would only have to pay1% of the first $1,400 of their annualIncomes into the Program,Now 7.65% on the first $90,000 3.) That the money the participants elected to putinto the Program would be deductible fromtheir income for tax purposes each year,No longer tax deductible4.) That the money the participants put into theindependent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into thegeneral operating fund, and therefore, wouldonly be used to fund the Social SecurityRetirement Program, and no otherGovernment program, and,Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent5.) That the annuity payments to the retireeswould never be taxed as income.Under Clinton & GoreUp to 85% of your Social Security can be TaxedSince 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% ofthe money we paid to the Federal government to ‘putaway’ — you may be interested in the following: ———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —- Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from theindependent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into thegeneral fund so that Congress could spend it? A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democraticallycontrolled House and Senate. ———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— — Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income taxdeduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding? A: The Democratic Party. ———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —– Q: Which Political Party started taxing SocialSecurity annuities?

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! TheDemocratic 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!
