    but don't raise the age for collecting social security or lower the benefits. Here's why...

    Yes, it's true that people are living longer (on average), but the people who are living longer are mostly people who are richer and who have better health care. Rich people live longer. CEOs get organ transplants or knee replacements or blood pressure medicine. Janitors don't. Raise the cap to $250,000 or so (plus or minus a bit) and I'll bet the solvency of SS will be fine for another 50 years.
