    Fix Social Security

    Social Security is funded through deductions to everyone’s paychecks. We pay in while we’re working, and then collect benefits when we retire but not everyone pays equally.

    While 94% of American workers pay Social Security tax on every dollar in their paycheck, the very richest Americans stop paying Social Security taxes on taxable earnings over $132,900 but it does not have to be that way.

    By simply requiring upper-income Americans to pay the same tax rate as middle-class families, Social Security's benefits could be expanded, and its funding would remain in balance for decades beyond the longest projections.

    Scrap the cap!

    Require upper-income Americans to pay the same tax rate as the 94% of American working  middle-class families that make less than $132,900 a year. This adjustment will keep Social Security solvent in perpetuity.
