There is no easy solution to this problem. It may not be a legal issue unless the statement was made due to some discriminatory motive, such as your age. Given the fact that you have been there for 9 years and the fact that you have at least implied that it may not be easy to secure other comparable employment, I would not make a hasty decision. If you are still very upset, perhaps you could speak to your doctor about taking some leave under the FMLA to help relieve the stress caused by the situation. Of course, now you know something about the character of your manager, perhaps you could request your employer to assign you to another manager.
