Why should the rich get this huge tax break, threatening the solvency of the program. Middle class families will pay this tax forever because our salary will unlikely reach $118,000. But the cap allows billionaires to pay .03% of their income towards SS. While the poor and the working families, the backbone of our country pay 6.2% of our already stagnant small income. Tks Congress for screwing us legally, but we've had enough. Scrap the CAP.
