Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that he favors gradually raising the retirement age for Social Security. He says “we need to look over the horizon” and mentions going from age 65 to 68 or 70. Bush says that would help sustain the retirement system for anybody’ under 40.

Bush isn’t yet in the 2016 Republican presidential race, but says he’ll have to make up his mind after a coming trip to Europe.
