Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A retirement age of 70 is pathetically bad, especially for those who do manual labor. For far too many it is a prescription for working themselves to death, or, at a minimum, working until they are in  bad enough shape to qualify for Medicade - which is pretty bad, especially in conservative states.
