Social Security Reform!

Do you know why
our Social Security funds are dwindling?

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT!
KEEP IT GOING!!!! 2004 Election Issue!!
GET A BILL STARTED TO PLACE ALL POLITICIANS ON SOC. SEC.
This must be an issue in "2004". Please! Keep it going.
----------------------------------
SOCIAL SECURITY:
(This is worth reading. It is short and to the point.)
Perhaps
we are asking the wrong questions during election years!
Our Senators and Congresswomen
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 congressperson 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..
For example,
former Senator Byrd and Congressman White and their wives
may expect to draw $7,800,000.00
(that's Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars),
with their wives drawing $275,000.00
during the last years of their lives.

This is calculated on an average life span
for each of those two Dignitaries.
Younger Dignitaries
who retire at an early age,
will receive much more during the rest of their lives.
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 our employer)-
we can expect
to get an average of $1,000 per month after retirement.
Or, in other words,
we would have to collect
our average of $1,000 monthly benefits
for 68 years and one (1) month to equal Senator!
Bill Bradley's benefits!
Social Security
could be very good
if only one small change were made.
That change would be to:
Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan
from under the Senators and Congressmen.
Put them into the Social Security plan
with the rest of us ...... then sit back.....
and watch how fast they would fix it.
If enough people receive this,
maybe a seed of awareness will be planted
and maybe good changes will evolve.
How many people can YOU send this to?
Better yet.....
How many people WILL you send this to??

How about adding the USA onto their health plan,
sounds better than an HMO to me!

Keeps this going
clear up thru the 2004 election!!
We need to be heard
