    Remember the Earned Income tax credit..... We got it because it addressed the regressivity of FICA.

    Payroll tax coming down, we need to look at 2062, thats when the SS Actuaries say us Boomers will be dead, they predict that assets will climb after 2062 in the 2012 low cost scenario.

    We need 25 million jobs, that is a lot FICA that the Trust Fund is not getting because our Gov refuses to invest in job creation at numbers that are remotely realistic.
