Completely Sensible Policies Which Aren't On The Table

I'm repeating myself, but in a sane world we wouldn't be worried about the catfood commission, instead Democrats would be at least temporarily lowering the full Social Security eligibility age to 62 and lowering the reduced benefit eligibility age to 60. This economy is horrible. It isn't getting better. People who lose their jobs at that age aren't going to get new ones which come even close to replacing the wages they've lost, if they get new ones at all.

I know we don't live in a sane world, we live in a world where Paul Ryan is Very Serious because he usually manages to tie his shoes, but someone has to say it.
