  •  Even just raising minimum wage substantially (7+ / 0-)

    makes Social Security far more sound.

    When a whole generation gets stuck with McJobs, we have a duty to make sure McJobs pay a living wage anyway- but that surge of cash into paychecks that 100% subject to FICA will also shore up the program.

    •  excellent point! one of those win-win ideas. (0+ / 0-)

      But it's still pathetic that people with high incomes get off with paying a far lower percentage toward Social Security than people with lower incomes. (our family benefits a little from the cap but I don't think it's right. We, others like us, and others with lots more than us should pay more).
