seattle:
And do the well off middle class baby boomers get shafted if means testing is enacted? Yes indeed ---no question. But these are the same people who ignored the developing problem for the past thirty years or more. WE are culpable!


I don't have a problem with getting shafted! I'm used to it! I've gotten the short end of the stick more times than anyone on this board would like to hear. We all get shafted in life, some more than others.

As far as SS goes, we have all been shafted equally as we have had a huge chunk of earnings taken from us on every paycheck or quarterly SE tax payments.

If I'm going to get shafted again when I'm eligible to receive SS payments in 20 years at the age of 62, then I want everyone to get shafted!<grin>

Let us all "feel the pain"!
