Retirement age (the remedy for social security)
The economists who are wrong about everything are all saying the payment for social security needs to be raised to 67. These people have sat on their dumb asses all their lives. While I am now 69, sitting on my ass writing brilliant reports of what the geniuses who know everything are doing to make all our lives worse, I have worked as a caddy, delivered booze, a cook, a longshoreman, a seamen, and the hardest job of all stacking wood in a pallet factory.
When I was 64 I couldn't caddy any more, it was too hard so I drove vehicles for a Chevy dealer. My father who was the most powerful man I have ever known (physically) worked as an engineer on a ship until he was 70 years old.
Uncap the payments from the $106,000 ceiling. Make rich people who benefit from the rest of our spending pay until social security is fully funded. When that day occurs, then we'll review the cap again.
