  •  That is not means testing that is breaking the (0+ / 0-)

    social contract, they are not the same thing.

    •  Well, to each their own. Certainly I disagree. (0+ / 0-)

      I consider "means-testing" to be a major breach of the social contract.  

      I have no recollection personally of ever having been told that I would forfeit a sizeable amount of my monthly benefit due to deficit reduction, or the fact that politicians have decided to no longer honor the social contract, as extended to previous generations.  Especially after having (like millions and millions of other Americans) my payroll taxes doubled in approximately 1983.  

      But, it's good to see someone that's happy with it, since my reading of The Moment of Truth has me prepared to see "Means-Testing" implemented sometime in the relatively near future.
