    that they are going to preclude folks age 55 and up.

    Only the Republicans did, and they've changed their tune since the election, LOL! (Knew they never meant it.)

    So, if you're not already retired, you should be very worried.

    Chained CPI will be applied to every Social Security recipient--including current retirees.

    And means testing starts in just a very few years--don't remember if it's 2015 or 2017.  

    Raising the retirement age--the same.  It will be incremental, raising the age by months at a time, but it also starts in the relatively near future.  

    None of these cuts start "years from now."
