‘Seniors and Income Inequality: How Things Get Worse With Age’ – ‘Jeb Bush Promotes Raising Social Security’s Retirement Age Without Challenge’
- So you work all your life and now Jeb Bush (and other Republicans) want you to work even longer before you can retire…..retire to poverty.
‘The Kaiser Family Foundation’s latest research on SPM data, shown in the chart above, found that 15% of seniors live below the poverty line but 45% are living at two times the poverty level’.
‘But the high poverty rate for older seniors has implications for fine-tuning any future proposals to increase Medicare cost-sharing or to alter Social Security inflation adjustments’.
‘It would seem obvious that such plans would need to protect lower-income seniors. Many seniors may need more assistance, not less’.
‘As it stands, too many can barely scrape by’.(1)
‘Jeb Bush promoted raising Social Security’s retirement age on Fox News’.
