Are the french people stupid?
After what happened in greece you would think that it would be easy to pass certain reforms to secure economic stability. The French president proposes that they raise the retirement age from 60 to 62 in an attempt to make sure the pension fund breaks even. Because of this proposal the french people are going nuts. Can they not see that the government can not sustain health care and a pension for everyone now that the baby-boomers are getting ready to retire and now that people are living longer. France could be the next socialist country to bite the economic bullet because the people cant think beyond themselves and there situation. They dont care about anything other than getting what they believe is owed to them and they believe it to be a right. Here is another prime example of the failure of socialism (creating dependence on the government) and unions (demanding more than a country or company can sustain with no foresight). The french people need to get real.
