Default Why Don't we just tax stupidity?

Crazy Comment by Meade.

Replace the payroll tax with a "Carbon Tax"! Okey dokey.

And no, more SS spending doesn't mean we need to spend less on everything else. The alternative is to raise the payroll cap on SS wages, currently at approximately $100,000 - that will solve the entire "SS Crisis".

I assume Meade is a well-to-do Academic with a great pension who doesn't need SS, hence his blase attitude that spending money on SS benefits is a "bad thing".
