Scrap The Cap

-- by Dave Johnson

Just Scrap the Cap

There is really only one way to fix Social Security and that is to scrap the cap: raise the limit on incomes that pay into Social Security. Income gains only go to the top few now, so the calculations that established the "cap" are wrong. So get rid of the cap and make the rich pay into the system.

Cutting benefits only shifts costs onto seniors and their kids who will have to support them. This video shows what that will be like for the kids.
