I wrote this to several of my favorite radio talkers:

No one seems to be putting these two things together:
1)Corporate America doesn't want to hire or keep employees who are over 50 years old.
2) there is much talk of raising the retirement age to 70. 

This sets up the question no one has been asking: if you can't get work after 50 and there is no anti-age discrimination law, and you can't collect Social Security until 70, how are we supposed to live from 50 to 70?

Please raise this question on the air, as there are even some on the left who are thinking raising the retirement age is a good idea.  I think we should lower it -- to whatever age age discrimination starts.
