It's still 65 unless you are disabled.

I think it's 67 if you are born in a certain year or later.  Probably be 70 by the time I retire.

I would opt out of SS in a second if they would lump sum me.

The lefties can laugh all they want about the struggling gop.    This debate is good.  The problem is that the dem party is too far out there to be part of it.  Now the gop can't act because half the party would make good democrats.

You can elect to receive SS at different ages, it just impacts your payout.  Jack is correct that the full retirement age is now 67.

Well I think the ACA is smarter than pre ACA and apparently so does the majority in Congress.   

Can we do better than the ACA?  I think most everyone agrees we can and if you cut out the extremists on both sides I think that path can be found.   But that means

1) Trump needs to engage the Democrats and not the Freedom Caucus

2)  The Democrats need to come to the table with a willingness to listen and compromise. Not just maintain the political games we have seen the past years. 

Trump is part of the solution, no doubt.  But it's really the GOP in congress, and particularly the house, that needs to engage the Dems vs the freedom caucus.  Can the house moderates come together?  Unfortunatly, I don't see it from either side.  I hope I'm wrong.

Social security is 65, 66 or 67 depending on your date of birth.  I think you can apply for medicare only at 65.

You obviously prefer to get a pos crammed down your throat with no debate

This area is where Trump really does need to lead.  But will he and will Congresspeople grow up.   Hard to believe they will either.
