The politicians call Social Security and entitlement; read on and get mad.

This was sent to me, I am forwarding it because it does touch a nerve in me..

This is another example of what Rick Perry called
"TREASON in high places" !!!

Get angry and pass this on!

Remember, not only did you 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.

If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (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.

The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.

Entitlement my ass, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

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 entitlements?

We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless

In the last 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 income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s 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 is time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did.

I PAID into the Social Security system therefore I AM ENTITITLED to benefit from PAYING into it. I think we need to WAKE to WHAT's BEING SAID AND HOW IT IS SAID.

Its not an entitlement e paid into to it, its insurance for our old age, and the government has been stealing from it with the promise to pay it back and they never did. Take all their stuff and sell it and repay THEIR DEBT, its all the governments debt not ours.

I dont like how this article complains about helping other countries. So Much fearful hyperconservative stuff on this site. Once again, I will say that the real problem lies in the fact that 90% of our money goes towards military ops and black budget crap.

The national debt is our debt, we are the government. It's just that we hired a bunch of crooks to run it for us. That's why the slickers managed to rob the SS funds. We let them do it! We were complacent, fat, dumb, and stupid! We need to wake up and clean out the Washington DC cesspool!

How easy for our politicans to try and make us feel guilty. That we are doing something illegal, when they call Social Security a Ponzi Scheme, Pyrmid Scheme, and some have even labeled it Welfare. I think we have to remind our leaders that we all paid into Social Security, along with our employers.The system have been functioning for 75 years. Pretty amazing a Illegal scheme that these same Politicans allowed to go on all these years.
