I'm drawing it out. The last two years NO COST OF LIVING
WAS EVEN CONSIDERED
FOR THOSE THAT NEEDED IT WHILE PRICES WERE CLIMBING EVERY
MONTH - THIS YEAR PRICES HAVE TRIPLED - AND I JUST GOT their NOTICE I'M
GETTIN A $10 INCREASE TO COVER ALL THREE YEARS
F*ck the government but especially their total ponzi scheme
that is so ACCURATELY laid out below...
I couldn't agree more with this woman...and have felt that way ever since
I began drawing my s.s. checks when I turned 62 - 8 years ago. Entitlement
my ASS! We all DESERVE THAT MONEY THEY MADE US PAY... never giving
us a choice, and now after they have illegally USED our money for their
own benefit (which is ILLEGAL), they have the nerve to tell us it is an
entitlement. BULLSHIT! We deserve to get it back, and should
be getting interest tacked on to it for all they years they held on to
it for their benefit.
Written By A Woman Who Has Her Facts Correct...
AND WHO DIED BEFORE EVER COLLECTING A SOCIAL
HOW MANY FOLKS DIED, BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED
$1 OF SOCIAL SECURITY THEY PAID IN TO OUR GOVERNMENT?
I donít know who wrote this, but it is worth
reading before you forward it, or delete it. Food for thought.
KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS
HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ IT... THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION
OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO
DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK. WHERE DID
THAT MONEY GO?
Remember, not only did you and I contribute to
Social Security but your employer did, too. It totaled 15% of your income
before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's
close to $220,500.
Read that again....
Did you see where the Government paid in one
single penny? We are talking about the money you and your employer put
in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement
check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement
when we reach the age to take it back. If you calculate the future invested
value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at
a simple 5% interest (less than what the govt. pays on the money that
it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.
If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive
$26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're
95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final
amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd
have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
Another thing with me.... I have two deceased
husbands who died in their 50's, (one was 51 and the other one was 59
before one percent of their social security could be drawn. I worked all
my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security). Their S.S. money
will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S all their
THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER
PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.
Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social
security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money for other government
spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout.
Remember Congressional benefits? free healthcare,
outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation,
unlimited paid sick days. Now that's welfare, and they have the nerve
to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?
We're "broke" and we can't help our own Seniors,
Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. Yet in the last few months we have provided
aid to Haiti, Chile and Turkey. And now Pakistan...home of bin Laden.
Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS.
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed S.S. income'
receive no additional federal aid nor do they get any financial breaks,
while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions
of $$$ and tons of food to foreign countries.
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement
even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives,
and now, when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out
of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It
was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn't it? Ö. 99% of people won't
have the guts to forward this.
I'm in the 1% -- I just did.
