Retirement ages must be raised

With people living longer and with families less able to support the elderly for 30+ years, retirement ages must be raised and workers must contribute more for their pensions.
And people wonder why Social Security and Medicare are in trouble. If you work 45 years, retire at 65, and collect pension payments for 20 more years would have had to put in about 40% of your wages during your lifetime to pay for yourself. Retirement ages must be increased to make sure that workers contribute enough to pay for their pensions. Age 60 or 65 is far too young with today's life expectencies. Denmark is doing something about it, so is Norway. The ideas if paying for retirements is discussed in the popular free ebook series "In Search of Utopia" (andgulliverreturns.info) Books 1 and 4 as I remember. We have got to be more economically realistic.
