15. OP- please lets start by using the correct term "FICA TAX". "Payroll" tax is intentionally vague

term meant to conceal the fact that SS and Medicare are essentially being defunded, as you described.

FICA tax includes 6.2% social security + 1.45% medicare tax so lets use that term.

Or "Social Security and Medicare Tax" - yeah its a mouthful but we need to call things what they are and not consent to intentional disinformation. "Payroll tax" refers to all payroll tax deductions, incl state and fed income tax.
