76. What??????
People in difficult or mind-numbing jobs? What about those jobs that are back breaking? Do you want a 67 year old putting a fire out at your house? How about a 67 year old putting in wall to wall carpeting, or tile? Would you want a 67 year old on your roof? The are body breaking jobs, and many don't even make it to 65.

So, what happens to them if they have to retire early, but make too much money for Medicaid? Fuck them, let them die? Or go bankrupt? Just because people who do office work, live longer, it doesn't mean every one else does.
