Are you serious? Rich people pay WAY more than poor people. I better go look up some links. "Tax breaks galore", maybe for the ultra ultra rich.
Since my brother and his wife went over $120,000.00 combined, they are in a39% tax bracket I think he said. Plus all the other multitude of taxes they pay as they both have their own business. Half the time my brother doesn't even take a pay check from his business.
Obama, at one time, before he waffled, said he would remove the cap on SS, it was the one and only thing I agreed with him on.

Personally, I think if a wealthy person is a caring individual they won't even accept Social Security, when and if they retire.
Me, being so unfortunate as to be a part of the working poor, just miss out on everything, but I have to pay to hilt for just being alive.
By the way, how is it penalizing them, to make them pay their fair share?
