  •  so let's cap SS benefits rather than income base (0+ / 0-)

    for a change.  Why do we only tax wages anyway?

    It's the RighTeas who want to make SS into a Welfare only program, so why should it have any tax limitations?

    On the one hand, RighTeas want to be able to say that SS is Insurance and therefore we must be "fair" to the wealthy by only taxing up to $110k of wage income because the benefits are capped.

    But, on the other hand, they want to "means test" Middle Class retirees and turn SS into Welfare.  

    The really Rich don't care about their SS benefits, they care about continuing their unfair tax break.
