    This is true, then it's more than enough reason to:

    1. Raise the cap.

    OR, even better:

    2. Make ALL income (I'm looking at YOU Capital Gains) subject to the FICA tax.

    Frankly, we should do both.

    Raising the retirement age is stupid -- if anything, since employers are getting rid of workers who are over 50 years old, we should drop the age of eligibility to 50 for both Medicare and Social Security.

    If we did that there would be more jobs for young people.
