    I think we should jack the payroll deduction up on those registered Democrats. Guys like you.

    And don't forget to boost their benefits commensurately.

    No need to boost benefits just reinstate the COLA that they have been without for the last two years. Has your grocery bill been stable for the last two years?


    Democrats wouldn't want to stigmatize Social Security as a welfare program
    What welfare program requires the recipient pay into it their whole working lives?


    and thus make it lose the little remaining legitimacy it has.

    Hhmm…the last I seen SS was favored by, 65% in favor and 20% opposed. Maybe I get my news from a different source. ABC / WaPo/.

    DRATS…fox wasn’t in that one.Sorry.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    OH LOOK!! American changed his aviator. Might want to switch from the ancient monitor you’re gazing into, to a crystal ball, seeing as you seem to think that I’m a “registered Democrat “.

    Explain why you think that raising the FICA cap to $180,000 would not make SS solvent for the long term?
