One of the stupidest things congress has done lately is to allow people to take SS at retirement age even if they still have large incomes. I know I did this, and I know several others who have.

Don't your benefits get cut in half if you earn over about $12k per year? Or have you got it set up so all the income is in your wife's business' name while you take SS with no income of your own?
