DARK AND SOME BEST
KEPT SECRETS ABOUT OUR SOCIAL
This was sent
to me by a trusted friend; a friend that stays
'informed.' I thought it so important that I have
chosen to share it with you, my Faithful Readers ~
"Many years ago in
Seattle, two wonderful neighbors,
Elliott and Patty Roosevelt came to my home to swim on a
regular basis. They were a great couple full of
laughter and stories that today I continue to marvel at.
Both are now deceased, but their stories remain.

Program would be deductible from their income for tax
purposes each year.
4.) That the money the participants 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. . .
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never
be taxed as
- 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" -- you may be interested
in the following:
