How silly. If this is true then constantly adjust the FICA tax to economic realities. It is unsustainable in it's current form because it is a ponzi scheme pay as you go program so when the benefits increase in cost, inflation kicks in, and the population declines you have to float the FICA obligation to compensate. This doesn't mean removing the cap because that kills the phony narrative of getting back what you put in. The big thing is no more FICA holiday, if the people get a reduction of their FICA contribution it should result in a reduction in benefits to keep things solvent.
