1* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Social Security?
2* How confident are you that the Social Security system will pay you all promised retirement benefits during your lifetime?
3* Is it possible to continue Social Security as it is today without raising taxes?
4* Currently, people pay Social Security taxes on the first $113,700 workers earn each year. People who make more than that do not pay Social Security taxes on salary and wages above that level. Should Social Security taxes be paid on all or most of the income workers earn each year?
