Congress: Scrap the Cap


On April 17, most of America’s wealthiest citizens will stop paying Social Security taxes. Once the payroll contribution cap of $117,000 is reached, millionaires and billionaires stop paying into the system, while the vast majority of Americans pay on all of their salary – all year long.

It is time to make the 1% pay the same rate as the rest of us. Add your name to the petition on the right urging Congress to lift the cap and increase Social Security benefits for all Americans. ⇒
