VT Senator Wants To Put The Socialism Into Social SecuritySubmitted by McWilly on Fri, 07/25/2014 - 17:12
I just saw this idiocy on Facebook yesterday and it was so beyond aggravating that I had to share it in today’s Roar and vent a bit. From an image that Rep. Bernie Sanders posted, which has over 50,000 likes.
Today, a CEO making $50 million a year pays the same amount into Social Security as someone earning $117,000.
If we lifted the cap and applied the Social Security payroll tax on income above $250,000 we could extend the solvency of Social Security another 47 years. And that's exactly what my legislation does."
- Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
Apparently Bernie Sanders views himself as a modern day Robin Hood, robbing the rich to feed the poor, despite that going against the basic rights of those high-salaried individuals to keep the wages that they work hard for.
