Raising the Retirement Age to 70?

Let's get one thing straight: the only folks who think raising the retirement age to 70 is a good idea are those who've never known the meaning of hard work. It's easy to push for later retirement when your daily grind involves sitting in air-conditioned offices, sipping lattes, and attending meetings about meetings. But for the backbone of America—the farmers, factory workers, truck drivers, and all the blue-collar heroes—this proposal is a slap in the face.

Politicians and bureaucrats who’ve never broken a sweat or clocked in for a midnight shift seem to think 70 is the new 65. They peddle this nonsense under the guise of economic necessity and increased life expectancy. But let's face it, this isn’t about economics. It's about them continuing to live in their bubble of privilege, where the closest they get to manual labor is typing on a keyboard.

Raising the retirement age doesn’t just mean working five more years; it means enduring five more years of physical strain, five more years of missing out on grandchildren growing up, and five more years of risking health and well-being. These elites fail to understand that not everyone’s job is a cushy desk gig. They don’t get that many Americans are already worn out by the time they hit 65.

It’s high time we called out this elitist nonsense for what it is. Instead of making life harder for hardworking Americans, maybe those in power should spend a day in the shoes of the average worker. They might just realize that the idea of raising the retirement age is as absurd as it sounds.
