Shorter Nikki Haley: Work 'Til You Die, America!

If you needed proof that the only primary going on right now in the GOP is the primary to gain access to the wallets of the donor class?

Exhibit A: Nikki Haley.

Speaking on Bloomberg News, where she’s SURE no actual voters can hear her, Nikki Haley goes off on how life expectancy means the Social Security retirement age should be increased.

Any candidate that says they’re not going to touch entitlements, means that they’re basically going to go into office and leave America bankrupt… We change the retirement age to reflect life expectancy.”

Uh, Nikki? Thanks to Covid and guns, and YOUR PARTY’S complicit aggravation of both of those, the life expectancy thing in the US isn’t going up.

The CDC: “That decline – 77.0 to 76.1 years – took U.S. life expectancy at birth to its lowest level since 1996. The 0.9 year drop in life expectancy in 2021, along with a 1.8 year drop in 2020, was the biggest two-year decline in life expectancy since 1921-1923.”

So let’s remove the Social Security tax cap for rich people like Nikki, LOWER the Social Security age back to 65 and take it from there, mmkay?

Oh wait, she’s saying now what the donor class (who knows to the day in January when they stop paying Social Security taxes!) wants to hear.
