  •  Not sure that has a better chance. (0+ / 0-)

    For better or worse (well, mostly worse), people see those making 100K-200K a year as middle class. So although almost everyone in that bracket could afford it, raising taxes on them is less palatable than raising taxes on 400K+ types. Most people know someone making 100K-200K - but not someone making 400K.

    On the other hand, "better chance" is academic, since this won't pass the House. It's about messaging. And "increasing Social Security benefits" is an excellent message, regardless of the details.
