US123 - Remove the Social Security Wage Cap
Currently, only the first $110,000 of wages are subject to Social Security taxes; removing that "wage cap" would fund Social Security for DECADES to come! (Provided, of course, that we could get Congress to stop using the SS Trust Fund as their own private PIGGY BANK!)
Social Security is an insurance policy for everyone, part of the social safety net. It provides a guaranteed minimum benefit to seniors so that people born into this country don't have to take the chance of not being able to save enough for retirement. It's a premium the rich pay to protect themselves in possible worlds in which they were/are poor.
