The cap was supposed to be there so that politicians could claim that Social Security wasn't a "welfare program," but rather an insurance program and since the benefits were restricted, there should be a restrictive cap.

Do you suppose they will lift the cap on SS payments as well ? When pigs fly.

All that SS tax money has been used for everything, including non-SS programs, for at least 40 years.

By raising the tax cap now, it helps make up for the fact that, for all these years, the government has used, abused and gambled a disproportionate amount of middle and lower income workers' SS cash.
