Increasing the retirement age

Recently, Our most taxing treasurer, Peter Costello, the other day was suggesting that the retirement age should be increased to 75 sometime in the future. I have few points I hope like to make on this:
  • Isn't Obesity supposed to be killing us all off before we get to retirement age.
  • Is this in anyway linked to the Abortion debate. I can see someone coming up with the line "If we didn't have so many abortions, we wouldn't need you to work until you die."
  • Does anyone realise how useless some of the old people? NOTE: I said someone, not all. At work, the two people who are the slowest and most difficult are both the oldest members of staff (62 and 65). I know I sound like I am having a whinge but they drive me nuts.
  • I bet that if these change does take place it will screw me and my generation but not the baby boomers. They have had everything handed to them on a plate.
