91. The RW wants to destroy SS, not fix it
If you've ever read anything by GRover Norquist you would know that.

If you raise the ceiling on payroll taxes past the $90K limit, the system would be solvent for centuries.

The workers pay a much higher percentage of payroll taxes than the wealthy. Make those rich bastards pay their fair share!
