Eric Rhodes: Social Security, it’s now a “BENEFIT?”


Time to form a citizen’s oversight committee and summon your members of Congress back from Washington, DC, to Explain to the people.

The Social Security a Gift from the Queen.

The Social Security a UK Treaty?

Subject: The new “truth” about Social Security, it’s now a “BENEFIT” meaning we are little more then chattle, government property. It took me damn near twelve year’s to get SSI, and not SSD! I now get food stamps…




The Social Security check is now (or soon will be) referred to as a

*Federal Benefit Payment*?

This puts all we older folks in the ”Food Stamp/EBT card group.”

I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this. I am forwarding it

Because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.

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 our money paid out of our

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 invest-ment in social

Security ($375/month, including both you 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 – it’s 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 (oh yes, they 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. (Isn’t it funny that they

NEVER say this about welfare payments?)

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 forward this.
Will you?

” I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the People to whom it properly belongs”

Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States in a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin (1802).

Does this not ring true?
