Age-based retirement arbitrarily severs productive persons from their livelihood, squanders their talents, scars their health, strains an already overburdened Social Security system, and drives many elderly people into poverty and despair. Ageism is as odious as racism and sexism.
— Claude Pepper

With or without a Social Security fix, Americans don't have enough assets to retire on. There has to be a much larger debate.

Picture quote about Secure retirement

What we should be trying to do is to encourage people to establish private retirement accounts and help them take pressure off the Social Security system.
— Dennis Moore

It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.
— Barack Obama

But here's what I would tell people of my generation. I turn 40 this year. There isn't going to be a Social Security. There isn't going to be a Medicare when you retire. Forget about what your benefit is going to look like. There isn't going to be one if we don't make some reforms to save that program now.
