From The Hill -- Lawmaker wants retirement age lowered to 60 for six months:

Congress could temporarily lower the age at which Americans can claim Social Security benefits as a jobs bill, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said Sunday.

Kucinich, a liberal Democrat from the Cleveland area, said a $15 billion proposal he's floating would create 1 million jobs for the U.S. economy.

The two-time presidential candidate's proposal calls for a six-month period during which people could retire at the age of 60. The program would be funded by $10 billion in bailout funds, and $5 billion in stimulus funds.
