Perhaps some will think of me as one of the selfish middle-class, but I feel entitled to my benefits. That being said, if they scaled down benefits by X-percent for everyone receiving more than X-dollars in order to keep the program solvent, that would be reasonable.


I included SS and my (tiny) pension in my retiremetn calculations. I have enough income to keep my present lifestyle (Assuming the market doesn't take everythng I have!) Take away the SS and I have a problem.
