alchook: "There is a certain sense of outrage that Social Security taxes are capped. What's generally ignored is that the benefits are capped as well."Agreed."Furthermore, the benefits are progressive in that they replace a larger percentage of a lower earner's income than a higher earner's."Point taken, but I believe that would be regressive, not progressive."It was meant to benefit everyone rather than to function as a welfare program."It has always been a welfare program. Taxes are payed to those with earned income and often (though nto always) to people wit little or no earned income.Regards, JAFO
