The Democrats try to convince everybody that the Republicans are trying to take away your Social Security. Lets look at the true facts. Social Security cards were issued in 1934. The money the participants put in was the independent trust fund rather than into the general operating fund and would only be used to fund the Social Security program, and no other government program.
1. Under Johnson, a Democrat, it was moved to the general fund so the government could spend it.
2. Social, Security was never taxed until Clinton and Al Gore allowed it to be taxed up to 85 percent, both Democrats.
3. Which party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security or FICA? It was the Democrats.
4. Which party started taxing Social Security annuities? The Democrats. Al Gore cast the deciding vote as vice president.
5. And which party started giving Social Security to immigrants? Jimmy Carter, a Democrat. The worst part of it is, they never paid a dime into it . And now, Obama wants to do the same for Mexicans.
How can people that spent 50 years putting into it turn their heads the other way and vote Obama in again? The country along with Medicare, Medicaid and our Social Security is going down the sewer and the dumb masses in this country are going to put him in four more years? After four years of nothing but lies and blame for everybody else for everything, how can people be so stupid? Our kids and grand kids are in for a hell of a ride.
