Governor Chris Christie wants a means test for Social Security benefits.  No benefits for people who make more than $200,000 and limit benefits for people who make more than $80,000.  Those people paid into the system for forty years or more and then don't get any benefit?  Why is that?  That's just fraud to tell someone they get a retirement and then don't pay it out.

If they can do that to people who make $200,000 per year, then they can lower that number every year until people who make $10,000 a year don't get anything.  Rather than stop people from receiveing the money they paid in, they should stop penalizing people who continue to make money after they retire.

I would remove the ceiling on earning money once you retire.  Rather than take money back, let people keep what they earn.  Right now if you Social Security of about $15,000 per year and you make an additional $15,000 per year working, then they cut your benefits.  In other words, they penalize you for working, they work to keep you poor; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
