Hi RPons,

IMMO, they should do away with the limit all together and that should take care of Social Security Trust Fund.

You do realize, of course, that the ensuing increase in the cost of employment will have an equivalent DECREASE in the volume of employment.

In other words, the more expensive you make it for an employer (me, for instance) to hire humans (especially Americans,) the more incented I am to find alternative (cheaper, non-human, non-American) sources & solutions.

THEN, more Americans are lining up for MORE handouts, with LESS employers contributing.

Not the solution we want, I'd suggest.

Cheers,
Dave
