    for social security and Medicare.
    I am 1000% in agreement. Start it NOW.
    Watch the wannahbe conservatives oppose it.
    We also need to cut government pensions for new employees, length of service for all government employees needs to be 40 years before retirement, eliminate all defined benefit plans for those other than military. Want a government job and want a pension? Fund it your damn self.
    Now.

    i agree with this too. if you want it sooner, then finance your own fucking retirement and get off the taxpayer's back.

    You guys do realize that citizens actually pay into SS every payday... don't you?

    Personally, I'd rather be able to opt out of SS.

    indeed, let me opt out and if i am not able to be financially secure by 65 or 70 than let me die in the streets. I could do much more with the $ im sending them to secure my future than use it to hope that SS will still be around when i reach the age.

    Fuck you, Boehner!

    First remove the FICA earnings cap then we'll talk moving back the retirement age.

    funny that the first thing ron paul started talking about on a national scale in 06-07 was opting out of SS (its also what got me reading up on him) and the "small gov" gop laughed at him and said its a good thing

    Social security was never meant to be a retirement plan.
    It was started when the life span was 57 years old.
    Social security is insurance, not a retirement plan.
    Tellme how it will work when folks are living to age 90 and their kids are 65?
    We have become a nation of village idiots.

    I do not want those that have my freedom in their hands worrying about their retirement portfolio.
