20. The are paying actually, but only up to a limit. Raise that limit aka "the cap".

I swear it was written in because they are so cynical. They know "trickle down" is completely bogus. Disposable or money for a rainy day fund is always trickle up. So by putting a cap on contributions to Social Security, they could eventually do what so many of them want, get rid of Social Security and Medicare. And that sounds completely crazy, but this is what we deal with.

Just try listening to Charlie Rose on or near the topic of "Entitlements". He's either completely clueless, or his sponsors would kill him if he didn't contantly bring up the budget and "fixing entitlements". He got Warren Buffet on record last night to say that Social Security has to be fixed.

Well, RAISE THE CAP! And then SHUT UP Charlie!!!
