It seems regressive that those above a certain annual salary (not income, because the amount is based on wages) no longer have to contribute. It seems that the people in the highest pay brackets will need the retirement benefits less than those who, thoughout their careers, have earned below the cut off point, and yet, their excess salaries are excluded from contributions. I suggest that the upper limit for contributions be done away with, and that the maximum payouts in retirement still remain as they are, adjusted for inflation. Social security is not a "give away" program but one that we all contribute to like a savings plan, and should be protected from other uses by the government. Do you agree or disagree and why?This money is taken out of our paycheck and our employer/employers match it. This money DOES NOT belong to the government of the United States. It belongs to the American people, but yet we do not have a say in when and how we get it. How can you fix a system that the government has dipped it's hand into for so long to finance other countries, wars, and God knows what else you do with it? When do we the American working class get a say in what happens with the hard earned dollars that we give you each week. Why are our seniors having to suffer for the negligence that goes on in Washington? If you can fix this, then the American people might just start trusting in our government once again. Can you really say, for the people and by the people?
