    Its by %

    Your own link said PERCENT.......

    the percentage of covered earnings that are taxable has decreased from 90% in 1982 to 85% in 2005. The percentage of covered earnings that is taxable is projected to decline to about 83% for 2014 and later.
    1982=90%
    2012=84%

    84% is as low as its been in years.

    You two are saying the same thing using different language. Lets save our energy for the GOP.

      and he/she is wrong. So what?

      You and I have been here before, and I - more than you, to your credit, I suppose - get exasperated when people here post:

      Oh look! Something shiny over there in the trees! It may be gold or silver! Let's tax it! And call it Social Security!
      I'm waiting for the proposal that we tax alcohol and tobacco an additional 6.2% and solve the [non-existent] Social Security problem forever!

      I'm not afraid of our enemies; FSM save us from our friends.

      No?
