Establish a fee for SSN Cards

Currently there is no charge for a Social Security number (SSN) and card. If I have to pay a fee to get a driver's license or ID, why are SSN cards free?

 

My suggestion is to implement a $150 fee for new SSN cards and a $200 fee for replacement cards. All income from these fees will be allocated to the Social Security Trust Fund.

 

I find this to be a minimal fee when you take into account that most people only get a social security card once in their lifetime.
