  •  How would this work? (0+ / 0-)
    an exemption on the first $15K of income from Social Security taxes
    Would those people be cut out of Social Security, or would there be a limit to how low your benefits would be? After all, SS is set by your income now, so it can end up being very low if you never earned much. Is there a limit on how low it can go?
