Sad but true !!

I didn't earn MY SS Payments??????



This should open a few eyes.



SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT



THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THIS CALCULATION IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN

THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY COLLECTED THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY!!!! WHERE

DID

THAT MONEY GO?????????????



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

me.



This is an 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 butt, 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's 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?
