    to think this whole Republican "get rid of Medicare and Social Security," is due to the lobbyists of business and the medical association.

    Business also pays part of the Medicare/Social Security tax and like business has been getting out of paying living wages, pensions, etc., and/or moving overseas to get a free ride on labor.  Also the medical industry has triple their costs in just the last fifteen years and the only thing that is holding prices reasonable is Medicare and business as well as the medical industry are lobbying against the people and that is why we see such a big fight by Republicans.  I know that we pay into the system, but so do employers and this is just another fight that Republicans are willing to take on for the sake of business and giving it what ever it wants, including being called a "person."

    I think on this one we shouldn't move at all.  67 is as far as it should go, because if we go up then in ten years they will come back again and do the same thing all over again.  And before you know it there will no Medicare, Social Security, or retirement age at all.
