But what are the choices? Let the improvident person starve in the street? Or raise the taxes on Gen-X so that Mr. Multi-Millionaire can get his $1700 a month?

To me the answer is clear. Means testing is the only reasonable way out. I may well be aced out of my SS, but it would go against my grain to let someone starve in the street, no matter how big a jerk he is.

Yup, I can't say I disagree with you. Somewhere in there a happy medium exists with which no one will be happy. I'd hate to be the short lived politician that will have to find it it in the future.
