    Only direct earnings. But given how many people make a living from non-earned income, it might not be a bad idea to tax that too, not just for SS but all other social welfare programs. We need to spread more of that wealth around. Like manure, it does more good spread out than in a huge pile. And really, what is excess capital but economic manure?
