    that eliminating the cap w/o raising benefits will leave the program open to corporatist msm framing of "means-testing" which leads - sadly but inevitably - to "welfare program".....

    IMO, a better option would be to raise the cap to say, $1M and index the benefits to balance progressivity with "everyone has skin in the game".

    The "extreme wing" of the Democratic Party is the wing that is hell-bent on protecting the banks and credit card companies. ~ Kos
