    could bend even further to favor lower income earners and make each marginal dollar for a very high income earner translate into a smaller increase in a future SocSec benefit. I favor this as well. What I oppose is raising or eliminating the SocSec cap on earnings but capping benefits.

      As you and I discussed previously, this is necessary to avoid the means-testing meme that leads to rw shrieking about SS being a welfare program.

      It's very easy to get lost in the weeds (details) on this subject, but the essentials are easy enough for all stakeholders to grasp.

      Which is why the onepercenters and their enablers, here and elsewhere, are trying so hard to confuse the issues at hand.

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