    How about NOT IMPLEMENTING IT?

    Fuck it... I'm a Middle Class/upper Middle Class guy and I'd rather not have the cut. I don't mind paying my own way for SS/Medicare.

    I don't think that's how it works, and I wouldn't want it that way.

    LMAO!! And I thought I had run into stupidity before. Social security is so the elderly, poor and infirm won't have to go to a county poor farm to die and end up in an unmarked grave. How do you feel about the 50,000,000 in this country who have no health insurance.

    I have a suggestion for you.....next time some Republican bastard starts an unnecessary war how bout you go and help fight the goddam thing.

    yes....social security is for the elderly and helps the poor and infirm....so how does Obama's plan to stop paying for SS (i.e. unfunding it by getting rid of the payroll tax) help the elderly, the poor and the infirm.....?

    fyi we are flat broke....

    I have a better way....a 1% tax on all sales from the pipeline the republicans tied to the bill that goes directly to social security :)

    You mean the ones the Dems have signed up for also,for it before they were against it?

    Cutting the payroll taxes should just limit they funds one collects later,its all based on what you have payed in. Should be your choce anyways more now less then its still your money.

    I don't see our Congress taking pay cuts, or cutting their perks or staff!
    Yet they are always wanting to cut from the poor, the children and the elderly.
