Taxes don't need to be raised if the government PAID BACK THE MONEY STOLEN FROM SOCIAL SECURITY for the last 50 years. The legislature complains about paying the interest on this money ( last borrowing if money was to pay for the Bush wars) so they complain they are paying entitlements. NOT TRUE. They are ONLY PAYING the interest, the principle is still missing from Social Security. And if you want to make Social Security viable RAISE THE AMOUNT OF TAXES PAUD INTO SOCISL SECURITY TO THE AMOUNT OF MONEY A PERSON MAKES. The rich only pay into Social Security up to $125-150,000.00. That is a drop in the bucket to what they should pay. Social Security is just like healthcare. A RIGHT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
