42. No it doesn't ...
Make more sense if you lower the retirement age to say around 62,
to allow people to start receiving both SS and MediCare.

This does 3 things
1) By lowering the retirement age, more elderly workers can retire
with dignity. This opens up their job positions for the younger
2) More younger unemployed into the system, allows more tax, SS,
and medicare revenue in to the system.
3) More younger unemployed off the unemployment rolls.

Besides, what does SS and Medicare have to do with the debt?
They pay for them selves. They don't use any tax money.
