Front derailleur limit socket stripped?

Hello,

I can't tighten/screw in the high limit screw on my front derailleur.

After a certain point, it just spins.

If I push hard with the screwdriver, the screw gets pushed in but it springs out again and doesn't catch.

Is the part it screws into shot?
Can I do anything other than replace the derailleur?

Keep in mind, if the cost of whatever I need to fix exceeds that of a basic derailler, might as well just replace.
