This is not something that CEO's and corporate business should be allowed to ask for or even request the government to change in the standards of life for the working class of America.

Its bad enough that corporate america has robbed the american people of their jobs for slave labor in foreign countries, this is another insult to the rights of the americans. Using labor again as over indulged and costly for business to profit. Labor is a fact of overhaead costs and its something business must not be allowed to exploit and demean for the purpose of profiteering. If any thing should be accomplished with business and labor, is give workers the right to jobs, corporate profits, in the form of higher wages and job benefits.

Its time that our government take these threats by CEO's as serious and intentional demands to steal jobs and retirement funds of its workers. Its a hoax that raising retirement help, they won't hire or retain anyone over 50 so they lie again. How this benefits the corporate world is that workers fired at 40-50 will not be able to draw on corporate funded retirement plans (401k etc,) for 20+ years.

When SS was first instituted, life expectancy was around 65, so it was never intended to support someone for 20-40 years. If you want to retire sooner, take responibility for yourself and arrange your financial affairs so you can forgo SS income until age 70. Many people already arrange thier affairs so they can retire before they get SS benefits now.

This makes sense, which means BO won't even consider it - for one thing, he woulnd't be able to use SS to scare seniors anyomre.

Somehow, somewhere deep down inside this scheme is a way to increase even more the salaries and bonuses of these CEOs and their friends.

old man,
I remember a prior post where you said the left did not villify the "one percenters"

I remember other posts where you complained about those with opposing views just parroting talk radio hate speech, then you give us this unsubstantiated attack that looks like it could well have originated on MSNBC or from within the DNC.
