Did You See this one Coming..?
I am in utter disbelief! First and foremost allow me to share a story with you. Quite a bit of time ago when I was the tender 13 years of age — getting ready for the orientation to end, all of us were called to listen and be quiet. My employer at the time began his spiel on how a certain amount of money would automatically be taken from our checks for “safety” as he called it — the funds he described were going to the Social Security Administration and held until our retirement.
Therefore for years (our working lives), with each new position came the same lecture. That was until I ventured out on my own to make some real money, yet nonetheless as I worked under a Form 1099 which meant I was responsible for remitting my own taxes to the SSA. This was something that was done relentlessly insofar as the people at the SSA office were mean, unsettled people that held the penalty of none payment fees and costs over one’s head.
Now the most important matter to me is that the government originally made this program during President Franklin Roosevelt’s time in office in 1935 actually (we think) having the individuals best interests in mind. It was compared to a pension plan for those who went into retirement.
Okay then — here is the nut of this story. This is precisely what Marx and all of his cronies wanted which basically is socialism — meaning, that although you and I and the next guy work and pay Social security taxes in the form of (FICA) those funds do not belong to the government; the funds belong to those who paid in.
By socialism I mean the true characteristics of the political system. Where the government owns all of the means of production. There is really no “independent ownership” of anything within socialism, everything is owned by the government. (Look at Australia’s Airline system, for example.)
If you are currently enrolled in Social Security, or are about to become eligible, please pay close attention to the following message.
By May 1, 2016, Congress will officially end a series of Social Security’s most lucrative benefits.
This will cause an estimated $11.41 billion to effectively disappear. It is a historic amount of money.
Currently, as many as 21.3 million Americans could be eligible for large payouts from these benefits.
And if you are one of them, your time is quickly running out to step forward and claim what is rightfully yours. Here’s what you need to know.
The banning of these benefits has been set in motion thanks to the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015-2016.
In Section 831 of this legislation, it clearly states this reform was intended to prevent recipients from collecting more money from the Social Security Administration (SSA) than Congress intended.
With the Federal debt quickly approaching $19 trillion, not surprisingly, these dramatic changes were passed in both the House (266-167) and Senate (64-35) with overwhelming majorities.
And this past November President Obama signed the reform into law.
This is obviously not an opinion that is shared by the American people themselves, though.
And you owe it to yourself to do whatever it takes to ensure you are not short-changed from the biggest reform to Social Security in nearly four decades.
Because, to be absolutely clear, a lot of people stand to lose a lot of money if they don’t act now.
