    Where the hell did THAT come from?

    There were no cuts in FICA for the wealthy in 1983, in fact for the first time wealthier recipients had to start paying tax on benefits this offsetting to some extent the income tax cuts for a mostly overlapping population. In fact a big part of the cash surpluses in SS from 1984 to 1988 came from those taxes on better off retirees. If you look at the numbers.
