3. SS is fiscally sound.. The "controversy" is fake..

If anyone really wanted to make it MORE fiscally sound, all they need to do is to eliminate the "cap" and make ALL income subject to FICA/SS deductions.,,,,not just "paycheck" income from hourly workers.

Medicare is the issue because we are living longer, but even that can be addressed by using some of the "extra" that cap-removal would generate, and probably only until most Boomers are gone (not that many more years considering how many of us may go uninsured/untreated for that 50-65 gap when so many are unemployed and broke these days...)
