Big Deal!! This is money for your Social Security that you may be happy to have. Instead of having a "date night" with steak, etc. people should be saving some of their money. Pinching penny's is not foolish. Too many people have NOTHING saved.

I rarely comment anymore on Strib articles because I find the hostility displayed by so many that comment disturbing. But, I am surprised this is not of more interest for the average worker. Our household noticed an immediate impact. Between the rise in S.S. tax and the 2013 increase in our healthcare premium (as well as higher deductibles) our very small monthly bit of extra is gone. We both work full time and this was money which we used for gifts, and oh my goodness, all of you that run your lives perfectly!) even the occasional night out! That is money that we will not be able to put in to the economy. I understand that we need to increase our taxes to pay for services,but our wages are no longer keeping us with the cost of living. The rich continue to remain relatively untouched and the middle and working class are, as usual, the ones who carry the load.
