    Remember this next November!

    The info below is from the Drudge Report.


    Remember: NO Cost of Living Adjustment for seniors for THREE years!

    ... but the "Senior Affairs Advisor" gets a 33% raise!!





    HMMM...17% to 86% RAISES IN SALARY FOR OBAMAS




    HMMM...17% to 86% RAISES IN SALARY FOR OBAMAS WHITE HOUSE STAFF MEMBERS!!



    NO WONDER WE CAN'T HAVE A COST OF LIVING INCREASE & HE WANTS TO NOW RAISE OUR TAXES!!



    SOUNDS LIKE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS REALLY LOOKING OUT FOR THE SENIORS, DOESN'T IT?

    NOT!!

    You're getting one. Part will be eaten up by increase in medicare. Bulge.



    WASHINGTON (AP) — Social Security recipients will get a raise in January — their first increase in benefits since 2009. It's expected to be about 3.5 percent.

    Some 55 million beneficiaries will find out for sure Wednesday when a government inflation measure that determines the annual cost-of-living adjustment is released.

    Congress adopted the measure in the 1970s, and since then it has resulted in annual benefit increases averaging 4.2 percent. But there was no COLA in 2010 or 2011 because inflation was too low. That was small comfort to the millions of retirees and disabled people who have seen retirement accounts dwindle and home values drop during the period of economic weakness, said David Certner, legislative policy director for the AARP.

    "People certainly feel like they are falling behind, and these are modest income folks to begin with, so every dollar counts," Certner said. "I think sometimes people forget what seniors' incomes are."

    Some of the increase in January will be lost to higher Medicare premiums, which are deducted from Social Security payments. Medicare Part B premiums for 2012 are expected to be announced next week, and the trustees who oversee the program are projecting an increase.

    They'd better enjoy this while it lasts because all those do-nothing idiots will be unemployed in 2013. (including Queen Shellys 120 personal lackies)
