One of my big fears is that when the US govt finally runs out of other people's money, one of the cuts is going to be by means testing SS. I don't have a problem with them cutting SS, either by reducing the benefits across the board, or raising the age, but means testing would piss me off. I'm one of the few who has a good job but drives a little economy car, lives in a little house, basically lives cheap (I still have a flip phone!) so that I can save for retirement. It would really suck if the govt decides to steal my retirement and give it to all the irresponsible people who live in a McMansion, drive a 30K car, have a 60" tv and take luxury vacations every year. The problem is that I think I'm in a small minority and you know how that goes.
