    •  we still need to raise the cap for long term (0+ / 0-)

      solvency, but it should NOT be a part of the current negotiation.  The only part that, IMHO, should be a part is the tax cut due to expire 6.2 to 4.2...that is contributing to the deficit as the difference is funded from geneeral funds.  At some point that has to get corrected.  I understand why Obama did it, but we cannot let it become the long term status quo.
