I support the idea of Social Security Plus where Social Security benefits are quickly or gradually doubled. I do not expect to live long enough to see it happen, but I do expect to see the effort to reduce Social Security benefits by means of the chained CPI gimmick succeed at least temporarily. Our present economy requires stimulus and one of the best ways to stimulate it, in my humble opinion, would be to increase Social Security benefits because those dollars will be spent, rather than saved as would tax cuts for the 1%.
