Entitlement my a$$, I paid CASH for my social security insurance!!!!

I am the 99%

I got the blurb below in a chain email - and I feel that it sums up how a lot of us are feeling right now.
Some more than others -

I can tell you - I'm mad as hell about the discussion around this topic.

I have worked for forty six years and paid into Social Security and Medicare the whole time - and it pisses me off that right now - the government is going to play a hide the wiener game with the money I paid in. 

I played by the rules!  I did what I was suppose to do.
I worked hard.
I saved for my reitrement.
I saved enough money to buy a modest home.

I hate my job - I hate working -  and I can't retire - because Wall street screwed over my IRA, Wall Street screwed me over on the value of my house and now the government is going to screw me on Social Security.

Everywhere I look - I'm getting screwed!

I wish there was some way to sue Wall Street and the Federal Government for FRAUD on this issue.  But they cover their asses with the phrase "Every investment has inherent risk".

Oh how I wish that every person on Wall Street would get screwed financially and end up living in the gutter where they belong.

This is another example of what Rick Perry called "TREASON in high places" !!!
Get angry and pass this on!

Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.

If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.  If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.  If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month. 

The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.

Entitlement my ass, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!!

Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout to the government!! 

Congressional benefits ---- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement entitlements?

We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey . And now Pakistan ......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement
even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives
and now when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did.
