    In order to save Social Security, we have to wait until we are very, very old to get benefits.

    So today it's 70.  Then it'll be 75, then 80.

    So please tell me how this constitutes "saving" a program that is intended to keep older people out of poverty?

    Of course they'll give out less benefits; most people will die before they ever get the chance to retire.
