    test for a program that people spent their working lives investing into.  A means test always produces problems of those whom fall between the cracks and end up getting nothing at all because they are little over the financial limit.  

    Medicare is also for the disabled in this country.  And I can tell you that getting disability is very difficult and can take up to three years in some states to get, if they means tested disability it would be worse.  Plus, people are already getting caught inbetween employers that won't hire you because of your disabilities and social security that makes it almost impossible to get disability.

    Means testing would make matters worse for many.
