<<BTW, SP, you going to claim SS when your time comes? Churchy >> Yes indeed. If the government is dumb enough to pay benefits to a multimillionaire, I will cash their checks.I also favor sharply means testing Social Security and Medicare.Medicare provides valuable services, but I see no reason to offer them to me for free or a subsidized price. Why use power of the government to squeeze money from working people to offer subsidized medical care to me? Offer me the benefits only if I will pay for them and I will do so voluntarily ----no government force required.Perhaps it's reasonable to offer heavily subsidized Medicare benefits to the genuinely impoverished, but why charge your children high tax rates to provide benefits to me?Seattle Pioneer
