The Commission recommended recently that the retirement age be raised to 69 by the year 2075, that some middle class tax breaks be discontinued, and that certain limits on Medicare benefits be imposed as well.
Kuttner expressed disgust at these proposals, saying “The economics are totally perverse” and arguing that we cannot climb out of this depression by focusing on austerity alone. Watch the video interview below for more information.
Robert Kuttner is the author of A Presidency In Peril and Obama’s Challenge, available now.
