    is how you can means test a program that people have paid into for years and years.

    It is like means testing a person with car insurance who has had an accident, but before they fix your car they are going to means test you to see if you can pay for the repairs yourself while the insurance company has been collecting premiums for years.  Then you get down to the question of why have car insurance at all if your not covered, which is exactly what I think they are trying to do to safety nets.  Make them worthless so that no one will use them, which is crazy.
