First Baby Boomer Files For Social Security Benefits
Kathleen Casey-Kirschling filed for early retirement Monday, becoming the first baby boomer to start collecting Social Security.
"I think I'm just lucky to be at the top of the boom. I'm just one of many many millions and am blessed to have been in this generation and really blessed and to take my Social Security now," Casey-Kirschling said during a ceremony held at the National Press Club featuring Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue.
I'll golf clap for you Kathleen. We should all be so proud that your livlihood is now in the hands of others. Isn't it liberating to know that politicians (and therefore voters) control your financial destiny?
Will you get an increase? How much? It's all up to the whims of others yyyaaaayyyy! The important thing is now you are forever bonded to this issue and will be forced into a voting life of servitude to protect your financial well being. Castro and Chavez are smiling right now.
