Government workers do not pay into S.S. They have a separate Civil Service Retirement Fund. The President and Congress have a special retirement plan which I am pretty sure they also pay no S.S.
If you say the cap is $110K then I will go with that. As I understand it no one pays any more into the fund once they reach the $110K max cap.
So what is your point? That the person making $300,000 keep paying into the fund with no maximum cap? O.k. that could be done but then his S.S.retirement check would than be super huge each month, as they are figured at a certain percentage of of your lifetime wages. I don't know about now but $2,000 a month was all anyone could get each month for retirement at age 62, and $3,400 a month at age 70, no matter how much money they put in or made in a lifetime. My figures are exact but are close.
Simple math Dave of an unfair system, Take Michael Jordan's income, and what percentage of it does he pay in SSI tax? What percentage of income does Joe the Plumber pay in SSI tax?

<quoted text>You hit the nail on the head with that post. So how many other cities will we have to bail out?
Let's see...

Why do Right Wing Wackos love to spend Billions of Dollars of Taxpayers' money on Arab Muslims, and scream bloody murder when America spends money on Americans ?

Unless of course the checks go to them.

Why can a Right Wing Wacko Administration literally drop $40,000,000,000.00 of Taxpayers' money into the open arms of Arab Muslims in the MidEast,
but a less Wacko Administration can't spend a few millions on our fellow Americans ?

Damn those pesky pesky facts:

Source: CNBC Sources

Beginning in the very earliest days of the war in Iraq, the New York Federal Reserve shipped billions of dollars in physical cash to Baghdad to pay for the reopening of the government and restoration of basic services.

The money was packed onto pallets inside a heavily guarded New York Federal Reserve compound in East Rutherford, New Jersey, trucked to Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington, and flown by military aircraft to Baghdad International Airport.

By one account, the New York Fed shipped about $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008.

In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 281 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons.

But soon after the money arrived in the chaos of war-torn Baghdad, the paper trail documenting who controlled it all began to go cold.

Since then, investigators have spent years trying to trace what happened to the enormous amount of money shipped in the frantic days of the occupation of Iraq.

Although there have been hundreds of pages of reports, Congressional hearings, and inquiries from Washington to Baghdad, no one in Congress, a special inspector general’s office, the Department of Defense or the Iraqi government itself can say with certainty what exactly happened to all of that money.

Oh wait... Did all these Right Wingers protects the insanity of air dropping $40,000,000,000.00 to Muslims war lords and drug lords ?

Nope.

But damn... Spend a dime on our brothers and sisters here in America and the screams erupt.

It's like saying the sun don't rise and there is no moon.

Or like you saying you never took a free coffee or donut while you were a cop; or a bribe, or an envelope with cash in it.

BTW; consistent and rational is an oxymoron with regards to any post you make.
Nice try.

Nobody noticed you didn't address the issue.

Nope.

Nobody noticed the idiocy of Right Wing Wackos who endorsed and sponsored the Right Wing Administration literally dumping $40,000,000,000.00 from the skies,
yes,
literally dropping $40,000,000,000.00 Taxpayers' cash, in $100 Bills, on pallets, into the open arms of Arab Muslims,
then whining that we might actually spend a buck assist our own countrymen in America.

Nope.

Nobody noticed how idiotic and hypocritically moronic the Right Wingers are when they advocate supporting Arab Muslims, but denounce supporting their own countrymen.

Nobody....

Except anyone with an IQ above the recommended air pressure for a slightly used radial tire.

Please don't demand consistency or logic from Right Wing Wackos.

If we wanted to drop $40,000,000,000.00 onto our Arab Muslim friends in the MidEast, then that's a great idea.

They loved it when Bush did it.

But spend money rebuilding America's infrastructure, educating Americans, assuring Americans have law enforcement and fire protection - no way.

That wouldn't leave enough money to send to the MidEast.

To Right Wing Wackos - that makes sense. But then again, they believe the UN is sending storm troopers in black helicopters to destroy our golf courses.

And they wonder why they can't be taken seriously.

You are a real nut case!

You've been pushing this BS so long, it's now time to call you on it.

"The enormous undertaking of moving the billions began in the heavily guarded Federal Reserve compound on 100 Orchard Street in East Rutherford, NJ. There, carefully screened employees loaded pallets of cash into tractor-trailers for their journey down I-95 toward Washington, DC. The money came from an account held at the New York Fed called the Development Fund for Iraq which was made up of billions of dollars in Saddam Husseins financial assets that had been frozen under various US and global sanctions regimes. They werent taxpayer dollars, but the US government was responsible for making sure they got where they were going."

OK,

My Black Lab says he can kind of grasp the analogy you seem to be attempting to make, but he agrees humans just can't make the connection.

Damn.... When you have an education, experience, a knowledge of history, and the ability to reason - it makes it almost impossible to communicate with Right Wingers.

If my Lab only had opposable thumbs, he could easily get the Right Wing nomination for senator from Georgia.

Detroit::
A very good read of what happened to Detroit. Also a portend of what will happen to other cities.
A great article.


"Detroit's unraveling can't be blamed solely on the city's reliance on one industry that itself buckled. Some point to the city's political leadership and its reluctance over the years to make tough decisions.

"I think it (the fiscal disaster) was inevitable because the politicians in Detroit were always knocking the can forward, not confronting the issues, buying off public employees by increasing their pensions," said Daniel Okrent, a Detroit native who wrote a Time magazine cover story on the city in 2009. "They were always kind of confronting the impending crisis by trying to make it the next guy's crisis."

Basically the politicians and public employees lived high on the hog off taxpayers, gouged every dollar they could and promised money that did not exist, and put off any fixes that needed to be done year after year after year.

fairtax.org
They both pay the same S.S. percentage rate of 6.8% up to the $110,00
Cap. Yes, the rich man will have a higher lifetime wage than the poor man. The rich man will have paid 6.8% of $110,000 per year, where the poorer man will have maybe paid 6.8% of a $50,000 wage per year. There is a maximum amount of a S.S. retirement payment no matter how much money the rich man makes. The rich man would pay more into the fund and get a somewhat larger check than the poor man, as the poor man didn't pay that much into the S.S. fund.

And voters just like you keep electing them year after year, no damn matter the party or the political leaning. Majority rules and the majority just ain't to bright. They throw voters a social issue bone and the feeding frenzy begins.

Voter are always pissed off at somebody or over some issue, the big picture eludes them. Voters get exactly what they deserve, argue that, please.

Wake up idiot, bitching all the time. SSI is for the poor and the middle class. The rich could give a damn, but it they paid nothing and got nothing you would also bitch about that. Are you the same man who not so long ago posted about closing up his business and sending his employees down the road. If you live you are the winner in SSI, just like any insurance, if you don't it was just another bad bet. And a bet is all any insurance is, and make no mistake, SSI is insurance, its not a grant or a damn guarantee. I am so feed up with stupid people who think they are owed something, it is just sickening. This tread is the honey hole of the stupid out of touch with reality who believe that it ain't my fault its ALWAYS somebody else's. And you nuts can and do vote, no wonder we are in such a shape. Blame someone other than yourself, or the people that you voted for, or the fact that you are in the minority. You want to change the Constitution to minority rule, have at it, please.

Great man that you are, come on bitch some more. Robert E. Lee is flipping up and down in his grave knowing that you are defaming his good name. Sorry for the rant, its just so scary to actually see in print in their own words what some people believe! Your failure is YOUR FAULT, nobody else's.
