    all we have to do is class all income as ordinary earned income from first dollar to last.  In that way Romney's capital gains, etc income would be taxed at the same rate (up to 35%) as a waitress' income.   Social Security taxes would be collected on every dollar a person like Romney earns instead of cutting off a $110k.  This way America would soon have a budget surplus and social programs would be fully funded forever.
