  •  How about contributions from EITC? (1+ / 0-)

    Yesterday David Stockman, the former budget director under President Ronald Reagan, was on the Diane Rehm PBS show spouting that there should not be a minimum wage, and that folks should get Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to make up for it.  But what happens when you go to retire?  Your SS benifits are based on your wages but do  not include what you got for EITC.  I wonder if he would still support such government subsidization of corporate wage destruction if there also had to be SS contributions to go along with it?
