Cry me a river.

Married folks don't pay any extra into SS for spousal benefits and singles like me end up subsidizing this largess.<?i>

It was also not the intent of ACA to allow wealthy people to game the system by reducing your taxable income to the point that they get subsidized health insurance while they harvest income from their qualified dividend earnings.

We of course are subsidizing their ability to game the tax code and ACA but apparently that is OK to do but it is not OK for others to try and maximize their own benefits under SS.

I don't have a problem with closing other loopholes

Then let's start by closing the ACA loophole for wealthy early retirees first. They certainly are contributing less to society than those still working.
