While having some lazy time this morning, I Googled "means testing social security," and I was very surprised at the number of articles that were listed from relatively influential politicians from both Parties. What really was interesting was the fact that so many articles talked about completely eliminating SS payments to people with non-SS income of greater than $60K. I find that hard to believe, but there were many articles that used that the same number as the cut-off point. I've alwasy figured that the politicians wouldn't touch anyone with non-SS joint (husband and wife) of $250K, possibly as low as $150K, and never to totally cut them off. It will be interesting to see how this debate plays out.
