21. Tax is flat, benefits are progressive, overall system is progressive.
The universality of SS is what has kept it alive for decades.

End the payroll tax and Republicans will gut SS the next time they are in power as part of cutting the budget. More for weapons, less for social security.

SS is fine the way it is. It has survived decades. No reason to change it.
