25. So you would be happy with keeping the 4.2 rate...

Even thought it is adding to the budget deficit. You see the amount of money contributed to the SS fund was still put in there through other funds. The program could not sustain that tax cut and would have undermined the viability of Social Security.

So you can call me whatever you wish and I really don't give a shit, but the whole purpose of this thread was to explain to people that reinstating this tax is the only option that should be taken in order to keep the Social Security program viable.

I thought it was a good idea at the onset because it would give each person working extra money in their pockets. It was enough to keep the economy from falling into a Depression.

So it was a justifiable TEMPORARY TAX CUT and that TEMPORARY TAX CUT should be revoked in order to preserve the viability of the most successful program in modern American History.

The whole reason I was calling it a tax in name only is to keep it separate in the minds of the people who think it is an increase in INCOME TAXES for the lower income levels.

HAPPY!!!!
