    you mean killing the idea of stealing $1.4 million from every working American. Thats a good thing. A liberal cant do math so has no idea how badly he is getting ripped off by liberal govt.

    Social Security is important for all seniors. SS should be for seniors and temporary for those seriously ill. It is time to clean up the dependency from addicts on SS.

    I think Reagan was the last President to assault the math like he couldn't see the future.

    But yeah, remove the earnings cap. I'm up for fixing the retirement age to 90% of life expectancy or something also if that helps.

    Social Security is a dressed up welfare program for seniors, financed by middle class wage earners. It inordinately rewards low income earners while it gives the rich a huge tax exemption. To be fair, all income should be subject to Social Security taxes.

    best fix is to privatize so libcommie govt cant steal a huge chunk of everyone's life time income!!!

    would you rather retire with $1.4 million in your private account or a monthly dog food allowance from our genius libsoviets???????

    Edward, in a kind of hippie / Star Trek idealistic world that would be great.

    But thanks to the reality of human behavior Socialism doesn't work.

    Thanks to the reality of human behavior its best we have some mandated Social Security.
