    Social Security . . . ,
    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", This money was already taxed
    once when you earned it ! You may be interested in the following:

    Q: Which party took Social Security from an independent fund
    and put it in the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic-controlled House
    and Senate.

    Q: Which party put a tax on Social Security?
    A: The Democratic party.

    Q: Which party increased the tax on Social Security?

    A: The Democratic Party with Al "the vote counter" Gore casting
    the deciding vote. He probably did this when he was inventing the
    internet

    Q: Which party decided to give social security money to
    immigrants?

    A: That's right, immigrants moved into this country and at 65 got
    Social Security. The Democratic Party gave that to them although
    they never paid a dime into it. Then, after doing all this, the
    Democrats turn around and tell you the Republicans want to take
    your Social Security. And the worst part about it is, people
    believe it !
    2004 Election Issue: This must be an issue in "04". Please !
    Keep it going.

    SOCIAL SECURITY: ( This is worth the read. It's short and to
    the point.) Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during
    election years. Our Senators and Congress men & women do not
    pay into Social Security and, of course, they do not collect from
    it. You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for persons
    of their rare elevation in society. They felt they should have a
    special plan for themselves. So, many years ago they voted in their
    own benefit plan. In more recent years, no congressperson has felt
    the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan. For all practical
    purposes their plan works like this:

    When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they
    die, except it may increase from time to time for cost of living
    adjustments.

    For example, former Senator Byrd and Congressman
    White and their wives may expect to draw $7,800,000.00 ( that's
    Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars ), with their wives
    drawing $275,000.00 during the last years of their lives. This is
    calculated on an average life span for each. Their cost for this
    excellent plan is $00.00. Nada ! Zilch ! This little perk they voted
    for themselves is free to them.You and I pick up the tab for this
    plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan come directly from
    the General Funds, our tax dollars at work !

    From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay ( or have
    paid ) into - every payday until we retire ( which amount is matched by
    our employer ) -- we can expect to get an average $1,000 per month after
    retirement. Or, in other words, we would have to collect our
    average of $1,000. monthly benefits for 68 years and one ( 1 )
    month to equal Senator Bill Bradley's benefits ! Social Security
    could be very good if only one small change were made. That
    change would be to jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from
    under the Senators and Congressmen. Put them into the Social
    Security plan with the rest of us ... then sit back and watch how
    fast they would fix it. If enough people receive this, maybe a seed
    of awareness will be planted and maybe good changes will evolve.
