Life expectancy in US surpasses 78.


The U.S. life expectancy has just hit a record high — rising to just over 78 years, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Wednesday.

Now we can raise the retirement age for Social Security to 82! (this is roughly four years past life expectancy, just like in 1935 when FDR signed it into law...think that was a fluke?)
