Famous lost words
Did you know that when President Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced the Social Security program (FICA) he promised that the program would be completely voluntary, that the money that participants put into the program would be income tax-deductible each year, and that the annuity payments to retirees would never be taxed as income? My, my. How things have changed.
