#3 – Expand Social Security Benefits – lift cap on taxable income above $250,000

     This plan will prevent cuts to the pensions of over 1.5 million Americans by

  • lifting the cap on taxable income above $250,000 so that the wealthy pay the same percentage of their income into Social Security as working people.

  • closing two tax loopholes that allow the wealthy to avoid taxes on money they inherit and expensive artwork they collect. [1]
