Is the Social Security Tax in The United States Unfair to the Masses?


According to the Social Security Administration after you have earned $110,100 in a single tax year, you no longer pay Social Security tax for the remainder of the year. So basically, Albert Puljos of the L.A. Angels pays social security tax for less than 2 games work in 2012 while the majority of Americans pay all year long. Is this fair considering it is proposed we raise retirement age every year to keep SS afloat? Why or why not? http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/240/~/2012-social-security-tax-rate-and-maximum-taxable-earnings
