    20 million jobs at 36k each adds 89.2 billion in FICA per year. About .6% of GDP, According to the CBO thats about all we need to do. Raising the income cap (.2% of GDP) and real job creation guarantees SS will be good thru 2090.

    •  We disagree strongly there. (0+ / 0-)

      Social Security benefits are crap for anybody but low-wage earners. Lousy return for median earners and above.
