<<And that $72,600 limit for 1999 really sticks in my craw. The deal was supposed to be that the wage base for OASDI taxes would increase at the rate of inflation, just as Social Security benefits do. This year the oldsters get an extra 1.3%, but JABoa, who is well paid but not that well paid, is seeing his Social Security taxes go up by 6.14%. It's enough to make a person hold his nose and vote Republican, but DO I SEE THE REPUBLICANS COMPLAINING?>>

I'm sure there's more than one doing his/her share of grumbling. Perhaps you reside in an over-whelmingly Democratic district and can't hear the voices of disgruntled Independents and Republicans because they're being drowned out by the chatter and clatter of the majority. Listen hard and I'm sure you will quickly recognize this issue and your concern has no party-affiliated exclusivity. :-)
