Paycheck and Social Security.

Paycheck and Social Security.

Can anyone tell me why so much is taken out of our paycheck for Social Security if you make more than $10/hour? I worked 40 hours a week and almost $250 is taken out for that alone. I would like to use some of that money towards my living expenses.
