I drew $2.25 less social security in 2013 than in 2012. My social security raise did not cover the cost of my insurance ,Medicare B,D, or my supplement, which mean I didn't get a cost of living for 2013.
Did you ?
What is Washington doing with our money? This has nothing to do with the budget.

Obama is using it to build himself a museum of his presidency. You should be happy to contribute.

They are providing YOUR Social Security money to those that are "disabled". To me, there is a difference between being disabled from working and being "enabled" by the government. Drunks, and drug addicts and those that are "too nervous" to work all day, but can sit at a computer and play God on Topix....well they can get a job like the rest of us.

Why would we want to do that when the govt. will just send us a check. You go ahead and work and I will go fishing. You are stupid to work when you can sit back and draw a check. The govt. gives it to you. Thank you democrats for my check. Ride on!!!!!

Because people who sit out and ride the system...have a very limited quality of life...and I want more for myself. They have limited ability to interact with others, forming a coherent sentence, writing a letter. ect. They can't or won't focus on education or homework with their children, if they are raising them and they aren't in Foster care and forget helping them to prepare for college. Afterall, someone has to help them fill out THEIR paperwork in the FUTRE, including the Administration Office at Social Security! So enjoy your fishing...if that's all you have to do, you are a prime example of what's wrong with the world today.

Some people are in need of help. Others are slackers that are taking money which should really be going to someone who deserves it. They are low lifes. it's not up to me to decide who is who. they will deal with their God.
You don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. That means, if you're bothered by welfare cheats etc. go after them, but don't shut down a whole system and deprive everyone of everything. Don't shut down a government. don't destroy a president. just fix the damn problem. and move on.
Overall, I think these bums and their drain on society, are small compared to the billions wasted in corporate welfare, subsidies, tax scams and outright fraud and deceit perpetrated by the wealthier segment. People seem clueless about this. Getting paid not to grow food or drill for oil, does not create jobs.
It's not just the poor who exploit the government. Rich or poor, It all needs to stop.

To answer the original post, your social security raise is based on the cost of living index. If it goes up, you get a raise. if it goes down, you do not. It is automatic. There is nothing political about it.
