    i was talking to non-assholes you needn't butt in if you're not going to be helpful
    the way this is phrased is very confusing

    •  It is not talking about the retirement age. (1+ / 0-)

      It is talking about the certainty of what people can expect. Originally Ryan and crew were telling those 55 and up that SS would continue for them as it then existed. People could plan accordingly. All bets were off for those under 55. As time passes the period of certainty decreases. Now it may be uncertain for those as old as 60 as to exactly what they will receive. If nothing else, assuming one does not plan to retire until age 65, the period to plan for financial security changes from 10 years to 5 years. But, how can anyone plan when it is never known what the final SS product will be?

      If you don't want to be kept in the dark and lathered with horse dung, stop acting like a mushroom.
