I think the Republicans need to jump all over this - everybody knows Social Security is going broke and the Obama answer is to reduce collection of Social Security taxes! We need to hit this hard and demonstrate to our seasoned citizens that Obama is going to take away their Social Security by bankrupting the system even more quickly. Remember the RATS scared senior citizens when Bush simply wanted to put part of the payroll tax in a private account to get more interest. Obama is doing this to reduce one of taxes "his people" actually pay.

I think that what's not fair is that those earners are paying an unconscionable amount of the total income taxes collected. So , Mr. President, take your "fair share" and shove it!

If he were serious he would be studying Paul Ryan’s plan. I find it reasonable and fair to everyone.
