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?

No, because there's no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Why is it taking so long for people to see that?
