paying more

We've often heard that projects and governmental affairs can only get done by raising taxes. Senator Barack Obama on the campaign trail remarked the very same when asked about funding social security

Obama says, "I think the best way to approach this is to adjust the cap on the payroll tax so that people like myself are paying a little bit more and people who are in need are protected." It's just a little bit more! And look at all the people we need to protect!

The problem here is that in the future democrats with the assistance of republicans will take a certain percentage of lower income earners and EXEMPT them from payiing into their social security. After all it just isn't fair for lower income earners to have to pay into this system since they can barely afford the food and shelter they have to provide ones self.

Obama also invoked his friend, billionaire Warren Buffett, who Obama said has expressed concern that he pays less in Social Security taxes than anyone else in his office.

Ahhhh !! Mr. Buffett nothing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING prevents you from writing a check to clear your conscience in this matter.

"And he has said, and I think a lot of us who have been fortunate are willing to pay a little bit more to make sure that a senior citizen who is struggling to deal with rising property taxes or rising heating bills, that they've got the coverage that they need," Obama said.
