    Let us remind ourselves that each of us in US has the same rights and obligations. Same right to enjoy all the fruits of our labor and efforts — that is the fair and reasonable way to go forward – is it not? Same rate of SS taxes – definitely for any and each person who has income > $133k. We have, over the years, seen that many many wealthy persons has publicly acknowledged that this SS tax exception for that group of people is wrong and harmful for the country. Let us STOP THE CAP.

    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.
