1. To raise taxes on the top 2% of earners, while sparing the other 98%.

I'll give you that, however, taxes are going up on everyone via the payroll tax. Extending the payroll tax reduction will hasten the SS trust funds being drained and put further strain on that program. Then there's also the ACA that will add taxes.

2. To protect Social Security and Medicare from any cuts in benefits or eligibility.

So just let them ride and ignore the unsustainable growth and structural problems that exist with them? Please enlighten me on how that "protects" those programs?
