<<In my opinion, taxation of Social Security benefits was long overdue. >>

Without debating the merits of taxing or not taxing SS, it is quite clear that it didn't used to be taxed, people made plans based on that fact, and the government changed the rules in the middle of the game.

In planning for your future, you have to take into account the possibility that they will change the rules again. Based on past history, I assess this possibility as close to 100%. The only question is when.
