Obama won't endorse raising retirement age or reducing Social Security benefits
he probably won't come out against apple pie, either.
He is a coward.
It'll be fun watching reactions to Ryan recommending getting rid of Medicare, and his plan to give old people a "coupon" for a discount on buying their own health insurance.
A Real Hero to take a stand like that against an immoral act of injustice against the old and infirmed on fixed incomes. They have already experienced raised age limits. Take it from the rich, they can afford it, the unpatriotic cowards.
I saw something on one of the pundit shows that was interesting. Someone recommended lowering the retirement age for a short period to encourage older workers to leave more physically demanding jobs. That was sort of interesting. I am sure it would meet with fierce opposition from the right, but these sorts of temporary measures are done all the time, in the form of tax breaks/grants/loans for big business to encourage hiring. That's actually been tried..and according to the right..it didn't work.
This might be a way to go..
Yeah because that would be too risky. I would do that on the second term and not even comment on that policy.
Way to putz out. Without a doubt the age needs to be raised. If you are too enfeebled by 62 you can still take the reduced benes.
Hell yeah! Who made up that stupid suggestion? Some con?
