Stop messing with Social Security

  • Article
text size: AAA

I just read your article on Social Security math in The Wall Street Journal Sunday section, and I can't believe that no one has thought of the idea to raise the cap on Social Security wages. Right now it is at $106,800, and what would it take to raise the cap to $500,000 or $800,000?

We taxpayers are getting tired of "tweaking," as you put it, to make ends meet. When will it be the responsibility of Washington to stop taking away from Social Security and Medicare. Maybe if the politicians were on Social Security and Medicare instead of their fat pensions and health care, things would be different. Now that's a thought!
