I must say I am shocked at the comments on this site regarding the taking away SS if you earn over a certain amount. Pure socialism. Since many of you apparently believe that SS should be taken away why not broaden this concept. One person said 69k was enough to retire on. Given this type logic I propose that anyone that makes over 69k that all such income in excess of 69k be taxed at 100%. Anyone that has worked and paid in to SS should expect to receive the appropriate SS benefit period. If there is a funding problem why use only SS to solve it since the funds have for years been spent to fund general government programs and not put in a trust fund earning money. Why not include government workers pensions that are in general much more generous than private pensions. If you guys don't think this will not impact savings and peoples response are not living in reality.

If the government decides to take away my SS if I earn over a certain amount I will revolt, especially if they do nothing with government pensions(including state emplorees)
