I don't know, but I don't think so.  It usually seems it's a congressperson that proposes these things.  We were discussing it as we were applying the new tax tables at work, but none of us could come up with it via google.  I figured someone here might know.

It's a little smoke and mirrors.

They took away making work pay and gave us a 2% FICA cut.  If you make more than 20K a year in SS earnings, you're better off.

In this case, the proposal originated from the White House and was written into the tax legislation that was approved by the Congress.

That democratic representative from Minnesota that got defeated in the last election started it - Rep. James Oberstar.
