Personally, the "donut hole" between $102k and $250k that Obama leaves me scratching my head. Does this make sense to anyone? It seems like a flat payroll tax would be "cleaner."


You had me confused for a while, there, but I agree with you here. If we collectively find a benefit from continuing Social Security (I do), then it needs to be funded by something besides the smoke and mirrors system.
