Blame the Democrats

November 04, 2002

To the editor:


Which party took Social Security from an independent fund and put it in the general fund so that Congress could spend it on programs that have nothing to do with Social Security? It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic-controlled House and Senate.

Which party put a tax on Social Security? The Democratic party.

Which party increased the tax on Social Security? The Democratic party with Al Gore casting the deciding vote. Which party decided to give money to immigrants? That's right, immigrants come to this country at age 65 and start receiving SSI from Social Security. The Democratic party forced Congress, knowing that the immigrants had never paid a dime into the program.

After doing all of this, the Democrats turn around and tell us that the Republicans want to take away your Social Security and the worst part about this, many Americans believe them. Especially older Americans who have been hearing all of these scare tactics.

Here is one soon to be ex-Democrat who is tired of the tax and spend crowd and will be supporting Bob Ehrlich on election day. Let's clean house in Annapolis and we'll eliminate some of the Glendening/Townsend $1.7 billion mess they will leave behind.
