Greetings, Butch, and welcome. You wrote:

<<Is it not ironical that our beloved government has decided to tax our ss benefits, if certain criteria is met. SS in my mind is actual a tax placed on ordinary income that all receipents have work hard to obtain during their productive years. It just doesn't seem correct to tax SS benefits. Does any one know what person or persons are responsible for this taxation on SS. Not ready for retirement yet, but like to keep informed of the problems, suggestion about retiree's and their questions. >>

The Congress giveth and the Congress taketh away, often at the same time. The "...persons ... responsible for [the] taxation [of] SS ..." are our duly elected representatives. Both sides of the argument on that issue have valid points to make. Regardless, it is the law of the land, and the only way to change that law for the better or worse is through Congress.
