    Uncap social security so it takes in more money, and then expand the program to provide living wages for seniors.

    I think we need a major overhaul of Social Security, I do, but the opposite kind of overhaul from the one the republicans want.

    The way to beat the deficit is to do things like that. Increase the taxes we draw, increase the services, and then show how the math means that our deficits on social services are because of faulty income systems, rather than what our very lean social services spend.
