President is 'wrong' to consider raising retirement age, Dem senator says
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Tuesday that the president is "wrong" to consider raising the eligibility age for retirement benefits.

Raising the eligibility age for Medicare benefits would be one way to raise revenue for the government without increasing taxes. The Huffington Post reported Monday that President Obama might be willing to agree to raise the Medicare age from 65 to 67 as part of a deal with Republicans to raise the debt ceiling.
