    If your parents are all ready on SS, and I think over 55, there will be no change.

    Hey, sooner or later he'll tell you what you want to hear. Just keep listening to him, and at some point he will agree with you.

    You mean like campaigning against Iraq and that W had done everything wrong and then deciding to follow W's timeline and strategy when he was in office? That sort of changing positions? Wow, that would be bad...

    First, for future generations of seniors, Mitt believes that the retirement age should be slowly increased to account for increases in longevity.
    Second, for future generations of seniors, Mitt believes that benefits should continue to grow but that the growth rate should be lower for those with higher incomes.

    With just those two simple steps, and no change in benefits for those at or near retirement, America can guarantee the preservation of the Social Security system for the foreseeable future.
