  •  Raising Eligibilty Age for Social Security (5+ / 0-)

    Many of the over-60 crowd work at jobs that leave them physically spent and aggravate untreated chronic medical conditions.  They are gutting it out just showing up for work each day.  Raising the retirement age would finish them off.

    As for turning Social Security into a voucher program or privatizing it, ask people who lost big in their 401k or took their pension in a lump sum to invest on their own how well that worked out.  

    Don't look back, something may be gaining on you. - L. "Satchel" Paige
