If the political savants who occupy the seats of power really want to cover the coming Social Security shortfall and make the system solvent for years to come close this loop hole. Require everyone to pay social security tax on everything they earn including payouts from trust funds, dividends from stocks, interest from bonds, etc.Just like a flat tax let everyone pay the same rate just level the playing field and let the rich pay on everything they make just as those who make less than 118,500 per year have to. Problem solved.Does anyone think this will ever happen? Does anyone think this will ever even be proposed? It is just like ending abortion by using the constitutional authority of Congress to limit the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court over abortion and making the abomination of Roe V Wade moot. The simple solution is never even mentioned, let alone proposed or debated.It’s like a shell game run by a huckster on a card table in the park. Move the shells after every election and no one ever finds the pea.The next time you hear one of our purveyors of the perpetual political ponzi programs say they are going to fix the Social Security shortfall listen carefully for the one solution which would solve the problem. You will undoubtedly hear the crickets serenade you back into the semi-conscious nearly comatose condition they hope defines the average American voter.
