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?


Instead of doubling taxes our government might want to first go after the waste, fraud and corruption that now exists in our own government.
The IRS erroneously sends out millions of dollars in payments to people who should not be getting them in the first place. Earned income credit checks in the amount of, in many cases, $5,000 were being sent out to people who did not qualify. Millions of dollars worth of checks were sent erroneously to the same address in Latvia. The excuse the government gives is that their computers cannot catch these "glitches".
Enough to make my blood boil.
I should probably watch less news. Maybe then I could get my BP under control.
