the party of lunacy

My pal John Zeller emailed this one to me.  

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated that 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 was removed.

Democrat Franklin Roosevelt introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.

He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary,

It's 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.

It's 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,

Contributions are no longer tax deductible.

4.) That the money would be 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 Democrat President Lyndon 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 Democrats Clinton & Gore, up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed.

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: Democrat Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Democrat Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the  US.

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
A: Democrat Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.  Immigrants, 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 it.

And naive people still vote for Democrats?

What would you expect from a party whose logo is a jackass?
