Naturally, humorless liberals and gimmee-gimmee groups like AARP are having a cow. "He's insensitive!" "Simpson must resign!" "How dare he even consider touching our sacred social security!" "Off with his head!"

It's looking more and more likely they will raise the age of eligibility for social security, as well as apply a means test. I'll probably be 70 years old before latching my pruney lips on the government tit.
Of course, it's quite likely that Obamacare will effectively cull the geezer herd, thus resolving the problem of those resource-sucking old coots .
