No. NO deal.

50 to 53 is not fair to the private sector person who is having to work til 66 or 67 or 70 (because the age will keep being raised) just to pay for a bureaucrat to have retirement freedom 15 years earlier.

No, No deal. Are you one? (government bureaucrat who got the retirement at age 50?)

Nope, I don't work for the government and have no pension of any sort coming to me. But I know the overall system of government entitlements is crashing and bringing our country down. I would be willing to accept receiving SS a year later than we are currently entitled to because I think much pressure would be relieved if the minimum age were raised. I understand and share your frustration about government pensions, but I think it is unpatriotic to fold our arms and say, “Not one inch.” I am exasperated by how few freepers would agree to raising the SS minimum age without imposing conditions that we all know are not going to happen.
