Our Government says, No Social Security Increase This Year or Next Year!

Any senior citizen who has not contacted their state representative and raised issue with the fact that we get no increase because the inflation rate has not increased in two years, should have their false teeth removed and not returned till they do.
If congress can elect to give themselves raises( and big ones to boot)every damn year, then I am confused. Doesn't the rate of inflation affect them , too?
Why do they continue to get raises? And they make so much more then the average senior citizen to begin with.
Last time I looked, my electric bill went up; the cost of gasoline went up,food is affected by what the gas rates are( costs more to ship);sewer rates went up.
Why are our elected officials treated like they are royalty, and on our tax monies? They get it all, and we get ziltch!!

  1. I couldn't agree with you more.
    They get so many benefits being in public office in addition to their overpaid salaries it makes me very angry.
