Hmmm, seems to me that this proposal is a lot worse that some of what has been discussed here. Those with above average incomes (most of us on this board) will get a double or even triple whammy - our FICA tax will be going up AND we will be "means-tested" when we reach eligibility AND we will become eligible later.
