Why does the youth have to take a hit for the fading generations greed and failures?
Republicans which are mostly the fading generations want to raise the retirement age on the youth. Why should they care if won`t affect them? It won`t kick in until generation X and Y. And even if we allow Republicans to raise the retirement age how will a larger worker pool help the youth with technological unemployment creeping up? And don`t forget the lower wages that comes from job competition from a larger worker pool.

The future generations are always the ones affected by today's policies. What's funny is that Republicans want to raise retirement age, but life expectancy is going to fall for the first time in history due to soaring rates of obesity.
