Check your pay stub

SSI is now called "FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENT ENTITLEMENT"

BS.
SSI is not a federal Benefit. It is a user funded program.
Not only dd we all contribute to the program our employers did too.

Call it what it IS:
Our Earned Retirement Income

Please DEMAND that our Legislators bring some sense into our government. Call and yell. Works great. Just ask your dad.
Tell them to stop borrowing from our SSI to run their Federal PONZI schemes.

Surprise!

Effective January 1, 2013 the Social Security tax rate is increasing from 4.2% to 6.2% due to the expiration of the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011. You will see this change beginning with paychecks dated January 2, 2013. The maximum earnings subject to Social Security tax in 2013 is $113,700.

I guess that is why they called it temporary?

Entitlement means that you are entitled to it, perhaps? But the right-wing GOP is trying to turn the old bureaucratic term 'entitlement' into a pejorative word, just like they did with the word 'liberal' back in the 1970s (liberal just means free).

The GOP didn't turn the word "entitlement" into a pejorative, the Dems did that a long time ago when they started calling tax payer subsidized programs like Unemployment, Welfare, Section 8, Food Stamps, Subsidized College Loans, Pell Grants, Medicaid etc... "entitlements." The Dems (admit it "Just Saying" you want it to) say that everyone is "entitled" to a free college education and free health care. All well and good IF 100% of the people paid Federal Income Tax but, as we all know only about 53% of us do.

Well, if there is a law that "entitles" somebody to some government payment for something, then they are "entitled" to it. That's the law. If you don't like it, change the law, then they will no longer be entitled it. Entitlements have NOTHING to do with natural rights, they are simply whatever the law currently allows people. That's common-sense.

Hey Huh...there is no such thing as a "government payment." One day I hope everyone will understand that all "government programs" should be called "programs paid for by other tax payer's money."

You idiot. You are comparing the entire federal budget to a retirement & disability program. One is the general slush fund. The other is a Ponzi style retirement program paid for and only paid for by the people who use it. The 99%.

But you make a point.
Many bureaucrats "think?" like you.
They're idiots too.
It's time we stop electing idiots.
The days of OJT Government are over.
If you want to be a politician you'll need more than a name.
You'll need a degree in Management and Budget and a hell of a lot of talent.

Liberal today means not free. Just like the patriot act, it's the opposite.

Obamanomics: Number Of Americans Collecting Social Security Disability Payments Hits Record High In December: 8,827,795

The Social Security program ran a $47.8 billion deficit in fiscal 2012 as the program brought in $725.429 billion in cash and paid $773.247 for benefits and overhead expenses, according to official data published by Social Security Administration.

The Social Security Administration also released new data revealing that the number of workers collecting disability benefits hit a record 8,827,795 in December–up from 8,805,353 in November.

The overall number of all Social Security program beneficiaries—including retired workers, dependent family members and survivors and disabled workers and their dependent family members—also hit a record in December, climbing from 56,658,978 in November to 56,758,185 in December.

----------
Unemployment benefits expired? No problem!!!
What part of 'Our Country Is Broke' does this administration not get?
Entitlements: Buying votes w/ your Tax Dollars is Bribery.
