Look, you are illustrating my point by refusing to agree to raise the SS age no matter what scenario I propose about other people’s government benefits. No matter what I come up with, you’re going to say, “Let’s focus on XYZ” or “What about ABC?”
You are part of the problem!
I did not say I would not consider it.
But before we push out the date of retirement (social security benefits), fairness dictates that we push out the date of government bureaucrats’ retirement - bigtime.
Let’s do that - which you do not want to agree to - first.
Then we can talk about pushing back the SS date from 65.
Otherwise you will have people being forced - in the private sector - to work longer just so that government bureaucrats can retire at age 50.
THAT is not fair nor just.
