Demand they lift the "cap" on payroll taxes for Social Security.  The person making $50,000 to $100,499 a year, is taxed on 100% of the income...From $105,000 to Billions are taxed 0 for Social Security.  Don't you think it's time for the wealthest paid people in the country to pay into the program just like everyone else has to.?

      Never have I seen a Democratic President do so much for the rich and do so little for the working and middle class of this country!

      I would want the cap lifted, yes, but it's erroneous to say that we are "taxed" on our income up to 100G per year. It isn't a tax at all, but putting aside a small percentage of our income. Currently, our contribution is 12.4%, I believe, which is matched by the employer.

      Not only should the cap be removed, but this percentage should be raised slightly, to 13 or 14%, also matched by the employer. Just those two tweaks would make the fund much stronger.
