Let's get real here.
For MFJ, SS is not taxed if your taxable income is below $32,000
Between $32K & $44K it's taxed 50%.
Above $44K it's taxed 85%.

Unless you retire dirt-poor, your SS is going to be taxed at 85%.

dunno, I've been living on SS for seven
years and don't feel dirt poor

last yr the first where SS taxed a
lot ..but I am single --maybe that's
the diff
