Thom Hartmann debates Jamie Weinstein, Senior Editor at The Daily Caller over the proposal of raising the retirement age to 70. Instead of asking the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share, the TEApublicans want to raise the eligible age to collect Social Security to 70. Their idea is to balance the budget on the back’s of the Americans who paid into the system and worked hard their entire lives. Despicable.
We like Hartmann’s suggestion that we should actually lower the retirement age to 60, thus freeing up countless jobs which would greatly diminish unemployment and help the economy. What do you think?
