Mitt Romney - Republican - Presidential Candidate - believes that we should raise the retirement age from 67 to a number in the 70's. Just curious what's everyone's thoughts on this? I am a Republican and I can tell you I feel that the retirement age should be 60 -64. My reasoning is I know people and have family in this age range that can't work anymore because of back issues, loss of memory and primarily just old age. 60 is not the new 30 by any means and not all of us can afford plastic surgery like Kristie Alley to look like she's in the 40's, just to name one person. I feel that if we raise the age any higher more people will die on the job from stress, over working, etc. Mitt also wants to "reinvigorate" Social Security by doing this, even though we all know none of us (born in the late 70's to present) will never see a payment from the S.S. department even though we put thousands in it.
