I got my social security statement in the mail today. We got a 1.5 % raise! Aren’t you excited? Me neither. Especially when your rent (house payment) and utilities are equal to twice the amount of your social security payment. The raise is suppose to be to offset the cost of living increase! That is so ridiculous it’s almost funny. Almost. We will have to live well into our 150’s to see any benefit even if the cost of living stays the same!
Of course, some of you were able to put aside money for retirement and are living comfortably on your income. That is wonderful! But some of us depend a lot on our social security to be able to live.
I think that our government should take care of America’s senior citizens who fought wars, worked hard all their lives, and paid in social security and taxes. They are taking care of everybody else!
I may have stirred up a “hornet’s nest” with this post, but I guess I had to vent! I would be interested in hearing your comments, and how this affects you!
