My husband and I were those people paying the bills.

This is the retirement board. Are you not retired?

I've been on the receiving end of FICA taxes since 2006.

My retirement planning 30 years ago assumed SS/M would not exist when I retired, since they weren't economically sound programs. But they almost doubled the FICA taxes during that decade, so it's lasted a bit longer. Maybe if they double them again?
