Beware the Village

Oh how they love the idea of raising the retirement age, or the age for medicare.  Well, not surprisingly Dancin' Dave Gregory is out of step not just with rhythm but the public at large:

Sixty percent of those surveyed support the proposal, compared with just 37 percent who are opposed. The debate over raising taxes on the high-income earners was one of the defining issues of the 2012 campaign, although polls have consistently shown broad support for the proposal backed by Obama and the Democrats.

Meanwhile, an even larger portion of Americans — 67 percent — are opposed to raising the age for Medicare coverage from 65 to 67. Some Republicans such as Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) have suggested raising the Medicare eligibility age as part of their proposal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff."

i would support it, tho this makes it harder for the young to get employed(wage suppression), ONLY is the age is lowered to 50 for the lowest 30%, and hiked to 80 for the top 20%..
