Why not? I just don’t understand this. It can go a long way towards making Social Security solid for decades into the future. In the clip below from This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday, Bernie is arguing it can also be used to expand benefits.
Why isn’t Hillary fighting hard for this? Like President Obama passing the Affordable Care Act, expanding funding to Social Security is a tangible movement a Democratic leader could make to restoring an America which is striving to reduce poverty. Especially in the most vulnerable of populations, especially after a life of work.
Why not have those privileged to be making $250,000 and above pay the same Social Security tax those making less than that have to pay? It does not make any sense and what makes even less sense is that we don’t hear about this more often.
Thank you Bernie for making it through the baloney questions from George Stephanopoulos and talking about policy. Even if you only had a couple of minutes to do so.
