This is for those who might be interested: snippet on the news tonight that Congress is considering reducing the income taxes on Social Security benefits of individuals earning over $34K.

I think you're going to see a lot of these bills between now and when the Fools on the Hill, a/k/a Congress, goes home to get re-elected. It's an election year, and a particularly nasty one, so both sides are trolling for votes with bills that they know have no chance of being enacted. Don't get too excited about these things as they come up; the chance that there will actually be any change this year is slim, IMFFHO.
