    instead of restoring the Social Security funding stream under the payroll tax?

    Making it a discretionary-funding program is a very very bad idea.  There's a reason it survived so long, and became the "third rail", which is precisely that it was NOT a "welfare" program.  FDR, under tyhe tutelage of Big Jim Farley, understood the ramifications of this.  If Social Security had been a welfare prograqm, how long ago would a pandering Democrat like a Bill Clinton have "ended Social Security as we know it" in order to pander to transient right-wi9ng political fads?

    Restore the funding.  (And yes, remove the cap, too!)

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
