  •  suppose you are in his position (0+ / 0-)

    You have to fake reasonableness

    And suppose the package comes in like this
    SS tax made progressive
    SS disability expanded
    SS retirement age moved up 1 year for people with desk jobs

    rule it out? Line in the sand?

    •  But is that a likely scenario (0+ / 0-)

      Of course, nothing is ever really ruled out no matter what a pol says. But they're only going to equivocate in public for scenarios they think likely. What strikes me as much more likely is:
      SS retirement age increased up to 3 years depending on year of birth
      SS benefits phased out for incomes over $60K/yr. individual
      Defense Dept. budget cut by 10%
