19. Agreed. NO Chaine CPI!!!

Since the GOP loudly insists no revenues be on the table, we know they're playing with a horrible hand. How to get the most voters behind the Democratic demands is important, I think.

I fear that they could claim it wouldn't fix the problem because they will disperse it all over the place and still leave SS & Medicare short. Raising the cap could fix Medicare shortages if it is written correctly so it passes along funds to the Medicare program. It happens all the time. Medicare comes from Social Security. It must be possible to correct that with pen and paper.

I suspect even getting rid of the tax cuts for the top 5% would be spun with tons of ads paid for with disposable income. The Dems need just one good ad negating all of theirs by pointing in a very inexpensive way how much money they're burning on tv ads to keep from having to give up another increase. Maybe there's a way to peel off a substantial number of that 5% to support the idea with ads. That would be cool.
