  •  income cap (6+ / 0-)

    Is anyone proposing eliminating the cap on FICA?  Has anyone figured out how much that would raise?  Since the government now regularly raids the ss surplus (blame LBJ for that), and since ss is one of the "entitlements" most threatened, this seems to be a no brainer.
    It should be remembered that the Rs have successfully destroyed the post office by making it fund retiree health care for 75 years.  This is their plan for everything outside the military--privatize.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
