To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official you are ALL
•The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get
it right and it is broke.
•Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
right and it is broke.
•Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and
it is broke.
•War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1
trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the
poor" and they only want more.
•Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get
it right and they are broke.
•Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right
and it is broke.
•The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on
foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a
year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
and it is an abysmal failure.You have FAILED in every "government
service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax
dollars. AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A
GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT'S ABOUT TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT
TO RUN IT.

Well MrKim. You do live in a state with the backbone to stand up to this ration
of shit, The Texas AG has filed suit along with a dozen other states in an
effort to repeal this unfunded and unconstitutional mandate.
2010 mid-terms are just months away. Make your vote count and kick these
arrogant cocksuckers out.

Social Security - An EXCELLENT SUMMARY!
Your Social Security
Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't
know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it
to your kids.
They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether
you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts!!!
Our Social Security
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1.) That participation in the Program would be
No longer Voluntary
2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,
on the first $90,000
3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,
No longer tax deductible
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,
Under Johnson the money was moved to
The General Fund and Spent
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees
would never be taxed as income.
Under Clinton & Gore
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed
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:
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the
independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?
A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically
controlled House and Senate.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
A: The Democratic Party.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the
'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the US
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -
AND MY FAVORITE:
Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants?
A: That's right!
Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party!
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democratic Party gave these payments to them,
even though they never paid a dime into it!
------------ -- ------------ --------- ----- ------------ --------- ---------
Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around
and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!
Are you one of them?
If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully
sure of what isn't so.
But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT
FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to
take everything you have.
