Incomes haven’t been increasing if you factor inflation. Why would one expect that will happen given the increase in the cost of living? Even if you increase the salary cap there are too few people at those higher income levels to pay current amounts. This will require a dramatic decrease in benefits.

if you put the social security/medicare tax on every income of 10 million or more, we'd be in much better shape. i know those people and their apologists like handouts, but it's about time we cut them off.

The population demographics as mentioned above will take care of that.

what population demographics? The one where the Millennial generation is bigger than the Baby Boomers?

These socialists don't want a more perfect Union.  They want a Union in their image.

Conspiracy theories. The last resort of those who lost.

Anyway, BETO O'ROURKE. Finally someone whose message encompasses all Americans. And not only Identity Politics agendas.

O'Rourke is an excellent candidate.

the astroturf campaign being waged by undercover GOP operatives says he has white male privilege, and should be disqualified. since there are no white males in the GOP.

Per our Tobacco lawyer of a Senator, I thought "the future is female"

I kid, I'm sure he's a fine candidate


"Robert Francis O'Rourke was born on September 26, 1972, at Hotel Dieu Hospital in El Paso, Texas, to Pat Francis O'Rourke and his second wife Melissa Martha O'Rourke (née Williams).[2][3][4][5] He has Irish and Welsh[6] ancestry."

I loath the GOP as a bunch of hypocrites, if your cool with the party you support doing the same all the best to you and you and yours.

Just get the Cheese ready for your 2020 whine. LOL

Beto has to be the biggest joke of a presidential candidate there is. He hasn’t done anything in life except get elected to congress.

But he may still inherit a real estate empire. We don't know his father's financial situation.

Identity Politics. The mistake that will cause the Democrat Party to shoot itself in the foot.

i understand what you're saying and i am NOT attacking your point of view, but....

didn't the current "president" take office based ENTIRELY on identity politics? the aggrieved caucasian (mostly male) identity?
