9. I wonder how many could do with an extra $1,000 a month.

Whether you are working or on Social Security or SSDI, I really think an extra $1,000 a month would not only set the majority of us back up straight in the middle class but the fact that we would spend most of the money would stimulate the economy. The fact is the money is there, but instead of funneling it all to Wall Street, we need to increase wages, make new jobs fixing our infrastructure and alternative energy industry. We actually can also increase Social Security and SSDI $1,000 a month. The money is there and if we raise the cap it will replace that money quickly, not to mention the new jobs created would put more back into the fund.
