    90% gives seniors a sizable increase in benefits, it increases revenues and avoids all the pitfalls I've outlined elsewhere. Add in job creation and wage growth and you've just about guaranteed SS is good thru 2090, as indicated in the SS Trustees low cost scenario.

      Yes, removing the cap entirely doesn't sound like a good idea to me at all, which is why I commented. I agree that it would bring in means testing for benefits, which would make it welfare and thus vulnerable to cuts. but I'm all for raising the cap.
