Lower the RETIREMENT AGE

Screw all this talk about working until you die! By lowering the full retirement age to 62, it would open millions of jobs to the unemployed. Not everyone would have to retire, but the ones that want to could!

I think Thom Hartmann called it the Cash for Geezers program!

2. Lower it to 55.

37 years of full time work while putting in a reasonable amount of money towards retirement. Then, retire with full benefits, and after that, at least 5 years of voluntary service within their communities working with youth, or the elderly, etc, etc, etc.
