Republicans! Please! Stop making sense! 

Why is it that Republicans are always going "You first?" It's what Jonah "White Feather" Goldberg says to the troops, and now it's what Senator Chuck Hagel is saying to you. Get a load of this:

Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel's plan would raise the age that retirees could receive full benefits, beginning in 2023. "We are living longer," Hagel said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation." "So when you look at the total universe of this, I think that makes some sense to extend the age."
(via AP)

It makes sense, eh?

Just so I get this straight:

I should give another year of my working life to The Man, so Hagel's super-rich buddies can keep their tax cuts?

And so the wage cap for payroll taxes isn't raised from $90,000 up to the well-above-average $140,000?

I don't think so. Me first? No, you first!

That would "make sense" how, exactly? Sounds like this proposal needs to be referred to The Department of How Stupid Do They Think We Are?
