Re: Michelle Malkin`s syndicated column Make 70 the New 65
From: An Anonymous PhD [Email him]
While Ms. Malkin`s article is interesting, I find it insulting to think, if such were enacted, "cui bono"?
(Who benefits?) As a 50-something White married male, I just finished my Doctoral degree study program. I`d gladly work in my profession (University prof.) until 70, if I could only find a job, and not be passed over because of my race AND my age.
Work till 70? Ha! Not if it means being a greeter at Wal-Mart. I`d rather get my "damn discount" ASAP, before it`s all gone, for all the good it`s done me to believe the lie of "equal opportunity".
James Fulford writes: The subject of the syndicated column is one we don`t really have strong feelings on, but our reader is right that a decision to make older Americans wait longer for social security will mean transferring wealth from the people who were in America before 1965, to the people who`ve come after.
