When Lyndon Johnson was president, he and all the rest of the Democrats said we had more money in Social Security than we would ever be able to spend. So what did they do? President Johnson and the Democrats took a great deal of money out of Social Security and put an IOU in the account.

Now our government is saying that Social Security is about to run out of money. I say lets put the money back in that was taken out.

Every person on Social Security should call their congressman and tell them to put the money back in Social Security and redeem the IOU that they put in when they robbed it.

If you do not have your congressman's phone number, your government listing will help you find the number.

Or you can just sit around and do nothing; the choice is up to you.
