Congress has reduced benefits many times in many ways. Currently benefits are being reduced as the normal retirement age increases from age 65 to 67 --- eliminating up to two years of benefits for everyone.

And Social Security benefits are increasingly subject to income taxes, another benefit cut.

There are lots more examples in the history of the program.
