To the President: Raise The Income Cap For Soc. Sec.

Petition to President Obama:  Raise the Income Cap

I'm apparently not the only one to create a petition addressing this issue, but I like mine best of the lot, naturally.

I'm going to Paste it, here, although I do not believe one can sign the petition from here; maybe one can.  If not, one can go to my Facebook site or Change.org to look it up and sign it.  I'm hoping for an initial 1,000 signatures.  If it reaches that many, Change.org will automatically increase the signature goal.  Each time one signs the petition, it is emailed directly to the White House.

Here it is:

Persuade Congress to raise the income cap to increase Social Security contributions.

Social Security needs to be funded in perpetuity, and its trust must never be raided again for other purposes. The percentage of income from the increased Social Security ceiling may be decreased slightly to offset arguments against this plan from wealthy individuals and corporations. The exact increase to the Social Security cap and the decrease in the percentage taken out of one's income must be determined by a bipartisan committee that will ideally take an oath to fully cooperate with each other and work on said changes for the benefit of all American taxpayers. We ask that President Obama use his position of influence to take the case to the American people and urge Congress to make Social Security permanently solvent.
