Something to remember. As this table indicates, trends in Social Security contributions are hard to predict, and are totally subject to the overall economy (better economy = higher tax revenue; for reference, see the Clinton presidency).. Even in 2001 we had a nearly 10% margin of error for what was going to happen in 2004. And Bush is talking about a huge structural change because of something that's forecast to happen in 2041.
