Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have introduced a bill that would both increase Social Security payments and ensure the full funding of the program through at least 2096. The Social Security Expansion Act would accomplish these ends by lifting the cap on the maximum amount of income subject to the Social Security payroll tax and expanding it to tax investment income above $200,000, moves which would only impact the wealthiest Americans. Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Val Hoyle (D-Ore.) have brought the bill to the House; Senators Whitehouse, Merkley, Van Hollen, Padilla, Gillibrand, Booker, Smith, and Markey have already signed on. We should urge our representatives in both houses to back this crucial legislation to signal we want to strengthen Social Security instead of seeing it used as a pawn in the debt ceiling game.
