Does raising the cap for SS work if we do it at the expiration of the trust funds?

Or will that not be enough by then?

20 years of build up would seem to fund a lot more than expecting to change it at the last minute.

In other words will that fix be inadequate if not implemented in a certain timeframe?

A portion of tax on capital gains, also, should be dedicated to Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, as should a transaction tax on sale of financial instruments.
