"OMG the Gop wants to raise the retirement age to 70"

I'd like to know what jobs they think people can hold at age 70. My parents are pushing that age, one's retired and one's semi-retired and there's a limit to what they can do because of health problems. Plus people my age can edge them out if we want since we have the same or better education and will work for 1/3 of their pay (possibly because they're living with their parents and delaying marriage). Unemployment for people in their 20s/30s has been going down, it's people at either end of the age spectrum that are getting screwed here.

interesting results coincides with Rusmussen, but independent Quinnipiac University Poll and others showed different trends.

Melvin is full of it and most of you should know that by now. He obviously forgets that many Democrats voted for both wars and have held the majority in congress since2007 so to act like the dems are blameless is absurd.

Strickland will win this one even though it will be close. Both GOP senate and governor candidates are both former washington insiders; Kasich was a rep in congress and Portman was Bush's budget secretary. People are angry at bailouts to Lehman bros and have it in for Washington connected millionaires, no matter what party they are from.

Ohio has two outsiders on the Democratic ticket and they should win; not because they are Democrats but they don't seem to reflect the big corporate interests of the GOP Ohio candidates.

No one says you have to work until 70, but they should postpone the inception of social security until at least that date. As it is now, we won't receive SS until 67.5 so its only a 2.5 year difference.

Field Marshal:

I still say SS shouldn't begin until 75 and that current total payouts should be reduced by 5%-10%.

Melvin, you are a funny guy...

Field Marshal:

Lastly, today you have a choice between receiving benefits at 62.5 or 65. You could do something similar for people who cannot work or afford to retire. SS is setup so that it pays out the same amount of money over the long-term, actuarially, regardless of the age you begin benefits. So, in theory, you can allow people to start benefits at 55 but of course at lower payouts that pay the same over the life of the beneficiary compared to if you start receiving at 75.

Not sure what it has to do with OH numbers, but the Soc Sec age was raised several years ago. If I remember correctly it was in the 80's. They raised the age for full retirement from 65 to 67. But it was phased in. I am not sure of all of the details, but I believe in the usual govt fashion it wasn't done in a way that makes any sense. The age was raised 24 months but it was phased in over a 27 year period. The one thing I am sure of is that my number is 66.5. It's in that statement I get every year from my buddies in Washington.

I am really not sure if it has been tinkered with since the 80's.
