    We got the EITC passed because of the income cap. Handing the GOP a gift=bad.

      the advantage for lower income folks' SS benefits by making sure higher contributions don't get proportionately higher payouts. That's the way it is now if you've studied the formula: higher income folks' contributions yield far less payback on SS compared to contributions of low income folks. The EITC should be kept; I see no need to involve it in negotiations to remove the SS cap on contributions.

      Actually, I see no need to do anything about SS at this point but if you must do something, then increasing or elimination the cap on contributions would be the thing to do.

      Just another faggity fag socialist fuckstick homosinner!
