    For me, it'd be another $40/month gone from the budget.

    The rate was always 6.2%, they just lowered it last year as a gimmick. Also the rich will pay the same additonal 2%, up to $106,000 that you will.

    Everyone also forgets the other 6.2% your company has to pay, or you have to pay if you are self employed.

    Nice attempt at a cheap shot though.

    The 1% already pay 40% of the taxes while the bottom 47% pay none. How much more blood do you want from these turnips?

    So you're opposed to raising taxes now? I'm confused. Furthermore, Social Security is already on a path towards unsustainability so being that it is solely funded by the payroll tax, wouldn't it be irresponsible to continue collecting at a lower rate?

    I don't want to pay another $40/month. That's all. Anybody who is already living from paycheck to paycheck is going to have a tough time with this one.

    Her attitude is sort of reminiscent of Lloyd George's promise before the Versailles conference. Squeeze them till the pips squeak. And if it causes disaster later on, that is none of her affair.

    But I am sure you want your social security check whenever you become elegible, so pay up.

    Flat out. I know none of you guys can do this, but I'm going to ask anyway. Why are you so deadset on raising taxes on the rich, but it's FINE to do the same to the lower and middle class. We need smaller government. Less spending. That's what you say. That's why you don't want to raise taxes on the rich to normal rates. But it's just fine to raise them on us? They shouldn't need to be raised. You all talk yourselves in circles, and then act like you're making sense.
