    Instead of small cuts to SS, means-testing and raising the age in exchange for modest tax increases and subsidy cuts, make the baseline increasing SS, raising the payroll tax cap and expanding Medicaid, in exchange for major tax increases and subsidy cuts, plus defense cuts to unnecessary programs.

    You NEVER make the offer just rejected the baseline for the next round.
