    Certainly, and the first revision should be to raise the $106,000 cap for the wealthy.

    Sounds like you had inappropriate expectations. Thanks for your thanks.

    We can have everything we want if we just pass laws making others pay for it. That should work for a while.

    Not at all, only their fair share.

    The SS tax rate was raised almost 30 years ago. Those who are poised to start receiving benefits have been paying a higher than required rate for quite a while in anticipation of these years.

    Yes, I know all about the politicians spending the surplus rather than raising taxes or cutting spending. That doesn't change the fact that those about to receive benefits paid extra into the system for many, many years.

    That's a blanket statement if I have ever heard one. If we cut everyone else's taxes but yours so would that make you happier? That way we can have nothing and tax no one else.

    party on, plastic parliamentarians
    What's laughable is your suggestion that Obama won't veto a bill that kills his signature legislation.

    how do you raise the 106K cap only for the wealthy? Or do you consider that amount a lot.
