What Do You Mean, 67?

The House of Cards writers are apparently unaware that the Social Security retirement age is already set to increase to 67. Quite often I wonder if many of our pundits are aware of that too. I'm too lazy too hunt down an example right now, but quite often people who suggest increasing the retirement age to, you know, SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY, talk about it as if that increase wasn't already in law. They might not come right out and say it, but it's implied.
