WASHINGTON – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) walked back his prior remarks that Social Security benefits should be cut by raising the retirement age, but added that the idea still "ought to be on the table."
"I made a mistake when I did that because I think having the conversation about how big the problem is is the first step," Boehner told CNN's Parker/Spitzer Wednesday night. "And once the American people understand how big the problem is, then you can begin to outline an array of possible solutions."http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/01/boehner-mistake-advocating-raising-retirement-age/

Anyone who expects any kind of logical actions out of this Congress is more than likely delusional.
