A slippery slope

Dear Editor:

“The Donald” has voiced his intent of replacing the payroll tax with funds from the general fund (translation: a steep and slippery slope. Very).

Why not, instead, make the payroll tax a progressive one with no income cap? This would assure a solid financial footing for Social Security in perpetuity.

How would that idea go over with our flimflammer-in-chief? Rhetorical question.
