They want to reform the way it's being siphoned off to people that never paid into it.

If that were true, they'd be cutting off widows, orphans, and wives who didn't work (or didn't work enough to earn as much as half their huband's benefit).

No, they just want to be sure that the lower 3-4 income quintiles have a more painful retirement--and they have an easier one. I guess it makes them feel better. Buncha Ryans <ptui>.
