I think the idea was that the first $1,000 in monthly benefit wouldn't be means-tested but above that amount it would be.

Ahh, well, its just a pipe-dream anyway. My plan would never fly politically and I don't even know how much it would save.

My guess as to what will happen with social security...we've got like 20 years or something before the surplus ends. Nothing will be done until then. Then I think they'll take a few years after it to do something, probably a small tax increase (maybe .5%) and a small increase in the retirement age.

Call me in 25 years to let me know if my clairvoyance is confirmed!
