11. That's really a good idea. And easy - Perhaps 70% of the people already pay this, why are we letting


others off the hook - IT'S NOT FAIR!

"You, and you, and you are already paying it, yet the rich guy down the street, the one making $250,000 a year is not. What makes him so special that the government needs to give him special treatment on your back? How much do you make? $7.50, $10, $17? He makes $125 an hour, probably does less work than you, and gets a free ride on your social security. Do you think that's fair? Don't you think he should pay his bills just like you do?"

We could have a field day with this.

Anyone who would rather have a conversation about cutting social security with a chained index, on the backs of the most vulnerable, should pay a price. I'd rather lose the representation than win by sacrificing the elderly and infirm for my comfort.
