This was passed along to me by my mother. Not sure who she got it
from. It's passed with the idea of passing it along. Seems like a damn
good plan to me. It's about time those thieves in office got a wake-up
call. Sadly, they also seem to be the ones with the power to keep this
going for them. But, worth a try.
IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE

2004 Election Issue!!

This must be an issue in "2004".
Please! Keep it going.
(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
You see, Social Security benefits
were not suitableforpersons of their rare elevation in society.They felt
they should have aspecial planfor themselves. So, many years ago they
voted in their ownbenefit plan.
In more recent years, no
congressperson has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great
For all practical purposes their
plan works like this:
When they retire, they
continue to draw the same pay until
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 Dignitarieswho retire at an
early age, will receive much more during the rest of their lives.
Their cost for this excellent plan
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
"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 monthafter 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
If enough people receive this, maybe
a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe good changes will evolve.
