Mark Takai on Social Security
Social Security benefits are a promise the U.S. government made to every American who pays in to the system and needs to be safeguarded for future generations. If you earn less than $117,000, you pay over 10 times the Social Security tax rate of someone who earns $1.2 million a year. By fixing that unfairness, we can shore up the Social Security Trust Fund for many more generations.
