I wouldn't particularly care if those bogeyman of the left, rising eligibility ages, were part of the deal if the proper carve outs were made for the kind of work and worker for whom these increases would be a true hardship. Good policy requires nuance and the French seem to do just fine with an array of retirement ages based on the type of work that is done. It wouldn't really matter anyway to the far left. The fact that a deal exists is considered proof of treason or spelunking or something. Americans don't negotiate with terrorists and the other guys are, by definition terrorists.


As long as the Democrats adopt the GOP definition of "compromise" and "bipartisanship" then I am all for it.
