When I began my 'crazy' campaign to support an increase in Social Security benefits, one point was to put the "just do nothing" option on firmer ground. I support increasing Social Security benefits significantly on the merits as the 401K experiment has failed, but I also support shifting the discourse enough that the only options aren't "cuts or no cuts." The Social Security cutters are now playing defense, so I consider it to be a win.
