Obamas' decree that there is no inflation thus no increase in SS payments is absurd. Prices are up 25-50% and in addition, packaged quantities are down 20-25%.

I can, so I will. And I'll spend far more on projects that help less fortunate folks have a better holiday, too.

Less, what the government didn't take and give to illegal alien parasites, recipient class druggies or public sector union pension funds I'm going to invest in Gold, silver and LEAD!

Gee, Mike ~

I guess the 2% or so COLA I received doesn't really exist! Good thing I didn't spend any of it so far!

It actually comes out to several thousand dollars for my family, per month.
