Rep. Gardner: Raising the Retirement Age

Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget didn’t go far enough for Congressman
Cory Gardner, who yesterday supported the hardline conservative budget
proposal put forward by the Republican Study Committee (RSC). While
the Ryan Budget continues to demand an end to Medicare as we know it
while doling out more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires,
the RSC budget lurches even further rightward and raises the Social
Security retirement age to 70.

“By supporting one of the most extreme and terrible budgets Congress has ever seen, Congressman Gardner is running out of issues for him to oppose
Colorado’s needs,” said Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Rick
Palacio. “Not only does this budget force an increase in retirement age, which would disproportionately affect women, it does so in order to pay for a tax break for millionaires and billionaires. With such upside-down priorities, Colorado voters will
soon be running out of patience with a Congressman that is far too
extreme for our state.”
