President Obama: Persuade Congress to raise the income cap to increase Social Security contributions.

Social Security needs to be funded in perpetuity, and itstrust must never be raided again for other purposes. The percentage of income from the increased Social Security ceiling may be decreased slightly to offset arguments against this plan from wealthy individuals and corporations. The exact increase to the Social Security cap and the decrease in the percentage taken out of one's income must be determined by a bipartisan committee that will ideally take an oath to fully cooperate with each other and work on said changes for the benefit of all American taxpayers.   We ask that President Obama use his position of influence to take the case to the American people and urge Congress to make Social Security permanently solvent.

      It's important to all U.S. Citizens at some point in their lives and in various ways. Those who collect Social Security need the security of a steady income. Those not yet collecting Social Security making less than the Social Security Cap are paying too much and those making more than the Cap are paying too little.Why is this important to you? (Optional)
