21. I've proposed this before, but will again. Either cap the tax cuts or end the cap on SS taxes.

 

rMoney's fond of the "goose & gander" analogy, so why is it that they're happy with not having to pay SS taxes on earnings above (what is it, $180K?) but have a problem with losing tax cuts above $250K. They can't have it both ways, and neither should we. If we extend the tax cuts for everyone, then it should come with an end to the SS tax cap. Otherwise, use the SS cap as justification for the income tax cut. They're using a double standard.
