235. they used to get quite a bit of press -- not so much these days. but seniors also
are more likely to vote than most age groups as well:

"An amazing 70 percent of those between the ages of 65 and 75 voted in the last presidential election to lead all age groups. On the low end were the young 18 to 24-year-olds, that produced only a 32.2 percent turnout.."

that's why the privatizers plans always include some provision that *current* retirees get to keep their benefits -- they don't want seniors as part of the opposition. cause they have lots of free time to make trouble.

also the reason it's important to make sure seniors are involved in this fight.
