What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

For 2014, the maximum amount of taxable earnings was $117,000. In 2015, the maximum amount of taxable earnings is $118,500.

I always wondered why there has been reluctance making people pay SS taxes no matter how much money they make.

Not sure why it is capped at what ever that number is . I seem to remember $113K or so.

Why the cap? Lift the cap and SS problems go away.

OWO....we all seem to have a habit of personalizing the problems rather than blindly solving the problems. finding that harmonious balance between extreme altruism and extreme narcissism is hard to accomplish when everyone is right.

You and I both know that mod. The the statement rings true: SS running dry at the hands of the Republicans is always a political issue.

We never run out of money for welfare and stamps.

Liberal Politicians grant big contracts and pensions based on the Pension Fund Trustees promising 7-8% returns year over year. When the stock market fluctuates the Politicians blame the fund managers. You say if you cannot afford to lose it don’t invest it. There is also another saying that also applies: Under Promise, over deliver. There is no way any investor can maintain 7-8% over the long term. Politicians lean on those number to OVERpromise and now they are forced to under deliver.

Yup! And consider the " in the trillions " fleecing exchange of wealth that occurred in the last thirteen or so years.
