The president has proposed sending a $250 check to every Social Security recipient, which sounds pretty good at first.



Next year, they are scheduled to receive no cost-of-living increase in their Social Security benefits.

Yet that is largely because they received an artificially high 5.8 percent increase this year. For this reason and others, economists are generally recoiling at the proposal.

Let's see there is no inflation so there will be no increase on SSI. So why does the Congress get a 5% raise?????? The aging population is getting screwed again! Usually what happens is there is a raise on SSI but at the same time the cost of medicare goes up, so there is no real increase in money. $250 is a drop in the bucket compaired to what most of the senior citizens are paying for medications for 1 month.
Once you quit working, you are a nobody and it doesnt matter that you may have worked for a company for 45 years or more. You don't matter anymore. This is just horrible. I the government has to do this to save money to give to the people fraudulently buying their first house and receiving a hugh tax credit (check) to do it.

Isn't that nice of Obama.
Looks like he is also throwing in an Alaskan Cruise for Seniors just for FREE.
