For those blaming baby boomers

This is a chart from the Senate Budget committee, showing the labor force participation rate for people 65 and above -- that is, baby boomers. No real indication of boomers "retiring in record numbers." Even Democrat darling Nate Silver wrote a column, "Don't blame the baby boomers." He points out that it's workers age 25-54 who are leaving the workforce in record numbers -- not boomers.
