  •  I'm agreeing with the notion that SS is (4+ / 0-)

    an earned benefit.  I'm pointing out that the reason that it is an "earned benefit" is precisely because of the link between the wages you insure and the amount of retirement benefits you get -- i.e., precisely the link that some "progressives" want to break by subjecting all income to SS without a corresponding increase in retirement benefits for those who are paying that additional wage insurance.
