    The sooner they vote it down the better. 2 months to do what? Horse trade and play politics? Make a decision. Get on with it. Speaker Boehner knows what to do. He already told us very clearly.

    Social Security benefits are highly progressive, with approximately a 10% bracket for wages below $10K, a 68% bracket for wages between $10K and $50K, and an 85% bracket for wages above $50K. The SS tax collection is flat, but the payout is highly nonlinear.
