    Its a MANDATORY deduction...so what should it have been called.

    review the legislative history behind it. The supporters were very careful to not call it a tax nor was it intended to be used for general revenue purposes. It was capped because the benefits were capped-much like the forced insurance retirement program it was billed at. Haymarket thinks that every bit of money taken by the government ought to be progressive. HE isn't content to have a highly progressive income tax. There is no reason why people who already pay most of the FIT should have to pay most of the FICA as well

    could you set aside your silly class envy for once and actually deal with reality? The rich already pay 40% of the income tax, all of the estate tax and now the parasites think they should pay most of the FICA tax as well-ask Haymarket, he thinks this FICA should apply to investment as well as earned income as well which would result in huge tax hikes on the people who already pay 40% of the income tax

    LOL! I point out the obvious holes in your arguments and the glaring flaws in your phony claims. The fact that you can't defend yourself without calling for some sort of divine intervention on the part of moderators is certainly telling with regard to the degree of desperation you experience here.

    The rich have an obligation to stop trying to rape everybody else as they have been trying to do since Reagan, turning up the volume quite considerably under Dirtbag Bush with just wonderful results. You know, we have laws at least here and there requiring criminals to turn over their profits from say writing a book about their crimes to the victims of those crimes. In the same sense, it hardly seems excessive to demand that those who have been stealing from society stop doing that and start paying their own way once again.

    No, they contain the sort of logic that you simply can't deal with. Don't take it personally, though. It isn't just you -- it's every other gullible and thoroughly deceived soul on the right-wing as well.

    Your idiotic generalizations that the rich are rapiing people pretty much sum up the essence of your attitude. And I tire of your sanctimonious attitude. Yes I saw your claim that you are some big washington left wing think tank economist "nearing the end of your career" who has "been paid to give economic advice" etc. Its all crap and your arrogance towards other posters contained in your posts is clearly signs of something other than actually knowing what you are talking about.

    You can rant all you want that the rich are "Stealing" from society. I think most of us see what the real issue is

    You are confusing a private IRA for your own individual retirement with Social Security which is a national program which has both an individual component and a societal component.

    Silly rants!?!?!?!?!? FICA is indeed a tax. That is simple reality. To deny that reality would indeed be the definition of the word SILLY.

    You have been educated on this before. Perhaps you have forgotten?

    http://www.ssa.gov/oact/progdata/taxRates.html

    Social Security's Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program and Medicare's Hospital Insurance (HI) program are financed primarily by employment taxes. Tax rates are set by law (see sections 1401, 3101, and 3111 of the Internal Revenue Code) and apply to earnings up to a maximum amount for OASDI.

    The rates shown reflect the amounts received by the trust funds. In certain years, the effective rate paid by employees, employers, and/or self-employed workers was less than the rate received by the trust funds, with the difference covered by general revenue. See the footnotes for details.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FICA

    Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax ( /ˈfaɪkə/) is a United States payroll (or employment) tax[1] imposed by the federal government on both employees and employers to fund Social Security and Medicare[2] —federal programs that provide benefits for retirees, the disabled, and children of deceased workers. Social Security benefits include old-age, survivors, and disability insurance (OASDI); Medicare provides hospital insurance benefits for the elderly. The amount that one pays in payroll taxes throughout one's working career is associated indirectly with the social security benefits annuity that one receives as a retiree.

    Pointless. In faithful right-wing knee-jerk fashion, you offered up the right-of-contract as some sort of sacred icon or talisman needing only to be waved to have its effect. As any legal novice would have, you then failed to notice any connection at all between that claim and the disgraced Lochner Era that was in quite significant part based upon it. Everything you've posted since then has been the simple gibberish of a failed cover-up.

    Great strategy except for that part about living in Wyoming or Nevada for six months and a day each year. There may be better options that these power-brains haven't thought of yet.
