      will go very far in adding to the SS Trust Fund.

      It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR

      I'm suggesting that a pushback based on rational economic analysis hasn't worked that well for the last few decades, because the same BS "SS is almost bankrupt" keeps coming back. Calls for removing the tax cap push the Overton Window back towards a place where the fearmongers have to either defend the 1% or walk back their BS. Either way, they lose their ability to call for SS cuts in order to protect low and average-income retirees.
