    from the main post above:

    "Payroll taxes have gone up for all, but not as much for the rich because of the earning cap Social Security, now at $110,100..."

    I say we raise the FICA earning cap to $150,000 or $200,000 the solvency issue at Social Security and Medicare would be much closer to resolution.  
    One simple fix.  Major political courage.
