Chaffetz proposes a series of steps to make the Social Security program solvent without raising taxes.

While I support many of Rep. Jason Chaffetz' ideas, he is dead wrong on not raising taxes on the rich. If keeping their taxes low will increase jobs, then why have we had the greatest job losses since Congress lowered the taxes on the top 1 percent? It did not increase employment. It actually caused higher unemployment because the middle class is disappearing. Trickle-down economics has never worked. Raise the taxes back to President Clinton's time. We had surpluses and economic growth.
