August 25, 2020: In a recent Zoom Conference with Congressman Mark Pocan arranged by the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans (WiARA), we learned that the House of Representatives have prepared a bill to strengthen and protect Social Security.
The effort was led by Representative John Larson. The bill would increase the cap for payroll taxes to $400,000, set a minimum benefit level and more. The bill hasn't been introduced yet and is awaiting Speaker Pelosi's determination of the right time for introduction.
