Recently, a resurgence of this email variant has been making the rounds on the Internet again.
SOCIAL SECURITY CHANGES
It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to ‘illegal’ aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social security all our working lives?
As stated below, the Senate voted this week to allow ‘illegal’ aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign a petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to that social service.
Instructions are below. If you don’t forward the petition and just stop it, we will lose all these names.
If you do not want to sign it, please just forward it to everyone you know.
To add your name, click on ‘forward’.. Address it to all of your email correspondents, add your name to the list and send it on.
When the petition hits 1,000, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Claims: False but based on truth
This petition misrepresents a recent Congressional vote regarding payment of social security benefits. As with the majority of forwards of this type, they take an actual event and twist it. Read this article on the effectiveness of this particular petition variant.
