High Earners Are Going to Hate These Retirement Proposals

For the past two years, a commission made up of 19 high-profile people from the academic, political, business, and investment worlds has been busy devising a bipartisan plan to strengthen the retirement security and personal savings of Americans. The result, a comprehensive 146-page report from the Bipartisan Policy Center packed with ideas, came out today.

A lot of high earners are going to hate it.

One of the report’s many proposals would raise the taxable level of Social Security earnings to $195,000 from the current $118,500 by 2020, part of a broader plan to “renew the promise of a comfortable retirement, across the income spectrum, for current and future generations of Americans.”
