Noted. Thanks, Cal.
Along with pensions & retirement funds "taking a hit," the cost of living has gone up while wages & jobs stay flat. Funny how the stock market is once again over 16,000.....inching upwards again. So, why are most Americans struggling? Well, the "entitled" CEO's and banksters are taking their cream from the top and continuing to threaten employees with less wages & jobs. Overtime was decimated during the Bush Admin.....in case anyone forgot THAT.
We need to take the payroll cap off Social Security, so that those earning hundreds of thousands of dollars....millions of dollars....are paying on every penny they earn. The Social Security Trust Fund is NOT in trouble.....the Federal Reserve borrowed money from it to pay for the wars, and I don't think it's all been paid back yet. (Maybe someone has some specifics on this). Wall Street criminals are so greedy, they're just dying to get their hands on that fund so they can gamble it away, while making more millions for themselves in the process.
