Social Security becomes...FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK

I hope that when you vote, you remember which side is constantly referring to Social Security as an entitlement!

If you get any Social Security at all in any manner, you might want to read.

Did you know this? Unfortunately most did not, and I am one of those whose Social Security funds are direct deposited to my bank, thus, I never see the checks. Once again, our beloved congressmen are playing fast and loose with vernacular. What motive did they have for changing the name of our Social Security? Im sure they have a plan, and it won’t be to our betterment.

Have you noticed, the Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit Payment”?

Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.

The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a Federal Benefit Payment ..

This isn’t a benefit. It is earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too.

It totaled 15% of our income before taxes .  If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 Invested in Social Security .  If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security( $375/month, including both your and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% Interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!

This is your personal investment.  Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month. That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month ,according to the Social Security Administration.  (Google it – its a fact).

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts. Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.  They took our money and used it elsewhere.They forgot (Knew) that it was OUR money they were taking.  They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed.

And recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer .  But is it our fault they misused our investments?

And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.  Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were a charity!

Let’s take a stand…………We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare.  Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government . Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

*Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income. *
99% of people won’t share this.

Will you?

Rosalind Peterson Presents at 2007 UN Session on Global Warming

Think chemtrails are just the imagination of "conspiracy theory nuts"? Think that global warming is just the fault of what we little people cause with our cars and energy uses? Then listen to this and NASA's reports and see what big corporations and our governments (who are blaming US for everything!) are doing!
