Raise or eliminate the social security contribution cap
Republicans are plotting to privatize social security with the lie that it is in dire financial straits. Even though not true right now, the fund will require more money as time goes on. The simple fix is to raise or eliminate the income cap on social security contributions. Right now those earning above $127,000 do not contribute one penny to the fund above that income rate. Which is of course by Republican design to 1) put the majority of funding on the rest of us while the rich skate, and 2) to create a funding crisis down the road to say the program doesn't work and needs privatization. Devious scumbags they are.
