Watty56 posts,To make this stealth means testing even more extreme the lower income people will likely not have to pay any taxes on their social security check but higher income people will likely have to pay taxes on 85% of their social security check so that in the above example the person who was making $150K a year might get a social security check that is 25% larger than someone who made $75K a year, but they will likely have higher retirement income so after they pay taxes on 85% of their social security check they might easily have less after tax social security income than the person who made half as much. For an explanation of how social security is taxed see this link;http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Taxation_of_Social_Security_b......</snip>I favor taxing 100% of all Social Security benefits. That will prevent people from complaining that their monthly benefit is partially taxed.intercst
