I just read that Texas Republican Sam Johnson introduced a new bill last week called the Social Security Reform Act. You said in your email to me that you were interested in bi-partisan solutions, which Johnson’s bill is not. It adds no new funding to Social Security and significantly decreases benefits. It does not increase the cap on Social Security pay-ins by workers as suggested by Democrats. The Johnson plan also eliminates taxes on benefits for high-income retirees. Since you said you favor bi-partisan approaches, you must be aware of the Social Security reform plan proposed by the Bipartisan Policy Center last summer. It’s the sort of commonsense, common-ground thinking this country desperately needs right now. And unless you were only pretending to care about bi-partisanism in your email, I assume this is exactly the sort of plan you support. It raises benefits for low-income workers and lowers benefits for wealthier retirees. So where exactly do you stand on the Social Security Reform Act and the Bipartisan Policy Center plan?
