From the Times-Tribune:

Republican incumbent Rep. Tom Marino said he opposes raising the retirement age because many people who work in physically-demanding jobs can’t continue to work that late in life.

He’s willing to consider raising the amount of income subject to the payroll tax and using chained CPI and favors allowing wealthier recipients to voluntarily skip getting Social Security rather than excluding them automatically.

The best way to fix Social Security and Medicare, he said, is to get the economy moving again because more people working means more payroll taxes paid into the systems.

Mr. Marino insisted one solution to fixing Medicare is repealing President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, whose individual and employer mandates will cost the nation jobs and damage the nation’s health care system. The Congressional Budget Office has credited the act for part of the drop in Medicare costs.
