Pat Robertson: 'People Love To Work' So Raising Retirement Is Awesome

Via Media Matters:

Robertson: ...Now with medicine and nutrition in our society people are living a great deal longer and consequently they should be working longer and they should not begin retirement age at 65 or 66, we should push that retirement age up to 70 or 72 and it’s not going to hurt anybody. People really like to work they don’t want to sit around----there’s nothing worse than sitting around in a rocking chair, who needs that.

Yea Pat, you go support your beloved GOP's agenda with plans to work people into their graves. It's easy picking up a shovel or unloading boxes for UPS when you're sixty nine with arthritis. What does he care? He's worth millions of dollars, but talking on TV is a big strain on the back I'm told. Let me ask you, Pat. What jobs will be available to seventy-two year olds?

This man represents religion in America? Maybe he's hoping that if grandma does continue to work she'll keep the donation checks coming.
