Top Republican: Raise Social Security's retirement age to 70 (Michael O'Brien - 06/29/10, The Hill)

A Republican-held Congress might look to raise the retirement age to 70, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) suggested Monday.

Boehner, the top Republican lawmaker in the House, said raising the retirement age by five years, indexing benefits to the rate of inflation and means-testing benefits would make the massive entitlement program more solvent.


...if you also get rid of the tax cap you make it so solvent there is no reason to reform it.
