Club for Growth Attacks Sen Lindsey Graham

Senator Lindsey Graham (R, SC) has had the temerity to propose solving the Social Security problem by increasing the cap on the FICA tax. The anti-tax Republican organization "The Club for Growth" has taken out TV ads attacking Sen Graham in 3 states, starting today because he made the proposal. See here.

This is an example of Republicans preventing the solution to the Social Security funding difficulties expected to begin in 2042 or later. The Club For Growth anti-taxers don't want a solution. They want government to close down Social Security and possibly put some kind of fig-leaf replacement called privatized acccounts there for a while.
