    I object to taking even more away from social security payments to the affluent. They paid in for decades and are entitled to what the government represented they would receive in return. However you quibble about whether it’s vested or not, it’s a breach of faith.

    Instead, I suggest that the tax base for supporting the disabled be the entire general fund instead of only the recessive payroll tax. Then mandate that employees have a sufficient retirement fund, with a federal plan being the default choice.
