    and this is just outrageous.  You can't just set a reset button after you are in your late 40's, and to all of a sudden tell people that while you had planned for retirement at 65 you will have to wait.

    And any senior who votes for the GOP should be required to give up their medicare and SS given that is exactly what the gop wants the rest of us to do.

      people want to screw their kids & grandkids.

      I think people need to phrase opposition much more aggressively - call it the screw your children & grandkids plan.

      And ask the pols who propose it - hey - aren't you asking these very same kids to now help care for their older parents?

      And ask everyone - This is the only program where you really just pay yourself - why don't you deserve it? Why doesn't actually paying more in and raising benefits help you? And everyone?
