    Raise the upper limit on the payroll tax, so that more money goes into it.

    Social Security is more stably funded than just about anything else you can name.

    Also, payroll tax holidays are a bad idea, since the shortfall is made up out of the federal deficit.  This does allow people to say that SS contributes (however little) to the deficit.

    The hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang, that jurymen may dine.
