John Boehner Is Pushing for People to Literally Dig Their Own Graves


The Republicans are seeking to take over the House of Representatives and, if they do, chain-smoking, scratch-golfing party-pouter John Boehner says he will move to raise the Social Security retirement age to 70.

This is a big, big deal. The argument has been made that rising life expectancy in the U.S. makes way for a rising retirement age, but it has been argued contrarily that a lower infant mortality rate, not people actually living longer, is the true cause of this heightened number.

A new television ad from Protecting America’s Retirees, an independent project of the Alliance for Retired Americans, takes a takes light-hearted look at the very serious subject of forcing seniors to stay on the job until age 70 (courtesy of @AFL-CIO).
