I would love it if our finance people could get in on this. My understanding is that Payroll Taxes include money for Social Security, unemployment, and Medicare. Is this correct? That means that Dean wants to cut Social Security, Unemployment Benefits, and Medicare. He has not proposed any increases to balance anything out. He has only made comments about cutting.

I think Deans loose lips just got him into trouble again. He should go tell seniors that he wants to cut funding for Social Security and Medicare. Now this is consistent with his positions in the '90's, but it isn't now. It is also not consistent with his plan to raise everyones taxes back to the pre-Bush days.

I don't understand how he plans to win an election by raising taxes and cutting Social Security, Medicare and possibly unemployment. Can anyone here give some detail as to where these taxes go?
