When the going gets tough, the tough cut the retirement age. New French President Hollande announces he's rescinding Sarkozy's 2010 bump from age 60 to 62.

    Hey, if it's good for France, it should be good for the whole EU, right. Errrrr.....wait a minute. Isn't the retirement age in the EU something like 55 or less. Oh well, "C'est la Vie."
