I always thought that when you hit 65 or older depending on what the new rules are you could collect Social Security but that you could not earn more than a certain amount or you would not be considered retired. Anybody out there know the rules on this?
Seems John McCain a fully employed senator is collecting Social Security. He gets a check for around $1900 a month while earning $169,000 a year for his senate position. His wife earned 6 million dollars last year.
Social Security and McCain
Now I have no objection to anyone collecting social security no matter how much they made during their working life, but to collect it while you're still making over $100K a year and your wife is a millionaire just seems wrong. The system was set up as an aid for retirees to "supplement" retirement income. We did after all pay into the system. We should at least get out of it what we paid into it.
McCain of course is totally against the system that he so gladly will use to his advantage.
