NYT Editorial: More on Rise of Extreme Poverty for Older Women

As my colleague Kim Dayton reported late last month, the National Women's Law Center has reported new statistics showing a disturbing, 2012 increase in poverty for woman over 65.  The New York Times in a weekend editorial takes up the implications of the latest stats, warning against planned cuts in cost-of-living benefits under Social Security.

Hat tip to Professor Ann Murphy at Gonzaga, with special thanks for sharing the editorial -- and supportive words -- during our respective late night writing sessions!
