  •  And if we can't raise the cap, politically? (9+ / 0-)

    Then we can do what Congress already did repeatedly....

    We can just increase FICA.  It would only have to go up about .4%

    That's a cup of coffee a week for the average worker.

    •  we can say the same thing about creating jobs (0+ / 0-)

      And did the cap get raised just recently?

      Like from 106k to 110k......

      I'm not heavily into what can or cannot be passed. I'm into what actually works, real solutions on scale with the problems they are designed to solve. So by definition none of what I advocate for is politically possible.
