One way we can help Social Security's solvency is by trimming a whole lot of "fat" off of our BLOATED FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! Several of the agencies need to be streamlined, if not abolished. There are too many bureaucrats and too many regulations. The bigger government gets, the less freedom the people have. TRIM THAT FEDERAL PAYROLL AND GET OTHER GOVERNMENT SPENDING UNDER CONTROL, THEN WE'LL SEE IF WE NEED TO RAISE TAXES, BUT I DOUBT WE'LL HAVE TO!
