ALL of you Politicians should TRY it once in a while!
Open Letter to The White House -
To Congress - to The Media

Save Social Security and Save The Nation!
Every man, woman, who works Anywhere for Anything should ALL be in the exact same boat! Everyone should have the Same Retirement System! Everyone - including Congress!
A very simple Two-Step Process would save the whole ‘Ball of Wax’ and Unite All Americans!
1. ALL other Retirement Plan Funds - Millions upon Millions of Dollars - should be Rolled into the Social Security Fund - starting with Congress’ separate ‘special’ fund! All Civil Service employees’ - All Federal employees - All Military personnel - All State employees - All Policemen, Firemen, Teachers - ALL - EVERYONE that is an American citizen should come under the Exact same, Fair Plan - SSA!
Accordingly, every payday, everyone’s automatic Payroll deduction would come out the same way, at the same Percentage! And then WE THE PEOPLE - we ALL would be subject to the exact same Rules - INCLUDING CONGRESS and THE ADMINISTRATION - then They would All CARE about the Real Future of Social Security!
2. The existing maximum, or CAP, on Earnings deductions should be totally REMOVED!
No matter what any individual earns - $10,000 - $50,000 - $100,000 - $500,000 - $1,000,000 -
$2,000,000 - $10,000,000 - $100,000,000 - ALL EARNINGS ARE SUBJECT TO THE SAME PERCENTAGE DEDUCTIONS! And - beings this fact applies to Each and Every American’s Personal GROSS Earnings, the SAME thing should apply to the Gross Earnings of EVERY CORPORATION AND BUSINESS ALSO!
Fairness - Justice - Equality - Common Sense - ACROSS THE BOARD! You want to live and thrive, and enjoy the Benefits of being an American Citizen, then - GRAB AN OAR, AND HELP ROW THE BOAT! Fair Is Fair - and Foul Is Foul!
All the Experts, and Economists, Engineers and ‘Egg-Heads’ - should sharpen their pencils, write their computer programs, and PUBLISH the Factual, Actual Figures as applied to this Thesis - and Let Every American Citizen be able to READ THE RESULTS!
SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY - AND SAVE THE NATION!
MAKE F.D.R. PROUD!
P.S. - FOOTNOTE: THE SSA FUND SHOULD BE TOTALLY SEPARATE, AND STAND ALONE - THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT OF 'OLD AGE AND SURVIVORS' INSURANCE' SHOULD BE HELD TO!
NO OTHER 'BS' ITEMS SHOULD BE COMING OUT OF IT! MEDICARE SHOULD BE SEPARATE - NOT TAKEN FROM SSA - DITTO FOR MEDICAID -
