I received this in 2008…and it hasn’t gotten better…
Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.
Our Senators and Congress women do not pay into Social Security and of course, they do not collect from it. You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for
persons of their rare elevation in society. They felt they should have a special
plan for themselves So, many years ago they voted in their own benefit plan.
In more recent years, no congress person has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan.
For all practical purposes their plan works like this:
When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die. Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living adjustments.Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. NADA!!! ZILCH!!!
This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them. You
and I pick up the tab for this plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan
come directly from the General Funds; “OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK”!
From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have paid) into, every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by your employer).
Public Servants…..or…. Expensive Welfare Recipients?
LET US SHOW OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON “PEOPLE POWER” AND
THE POWER OF THE INTERNET. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS.
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT!
INSIST THAT THEY PASS A BILL TO PLACE ALL POLITICIANS ON SOCIAL SECURITY
