You are defending an arbitrary number.
You are waging class war against the American middle class.

Social security can be fixed, and not by raising retirement to age 70, many will die before they retire, that is the way the politicians want to fix SS, the better way:

Millionaires, billionaires don't pay the FICA tax. If Congress just eliminated or adjusted the cap so that the high incomer's paid their fair share into social security We can save Social Security. The FICA caps at 110,800, no one pays social security above cap, raise the cap and the fund would be running over. The republicans want to raise the retirement age to 69, many that work with their backs that require lifting or strong backs can't work until age 69, many don't live to age 69, is that their way of fixing social security? One senator, Bernie Sanders favors raising or just eliminate the cap. Congressmen never even talk about the subject because many are millionaires and will never vote to tax them selves

Any changes to social security should affect EVERY citizen, including current recipients.
So if they want to raise the retirement age to 70, then all seniors CURRENTLY under age 70 should have to pay back every penny they've received and can reapply for social security when they turn 70.
If they want to change how the cost of living increase is calculated, then it must apply to ALL current recipients as well as future recipients.
Etc, etc, etc.
CURRENT recipients benefited as much as everyone else from the artifically low tax rates which resulted from raiding the excess social security trust funds all those years, so CURRENT recipients must also participate in making the system "solvent" again.
Maybe you will die befor you reach 70 then we won't have to burden SS with your monthly check, every little bit helps?

That's obviously the GOPasaurs plan to "save" social security; hope everyone dies before they can collect their benefits. Ditto for Medicare.
