  •  Uh no. Social security is not a problem here (4+ / 0-)

    But this bill links it to the problem for the first time.

    Social security has several far better fixes on its own.

      We should stop calling it "payroll tax" so that it is clear that, for the first time, social security revenues are up for grabs.

      I mean, we've been spending them all along, but I think this is the first time anyone has every proposed that you can run a good retirement plan by having "revenue holidays".

      They should have just cut the marginal tax rates.  This "payroll" thing is dangerous.
