    Mr Obama and the powers that be say that there was no inflation because the cost of Gas went down.

    I don't know about all the retirees, but this one doesn't drive very much anymore. I don't have that 15 mile trip to work (one way).

    Fact is I can easily go a whole week without starting the car.

    The other facts are that we have seen Groceries go up. And I'm certain that the powers that be haven't been in a super market for years.

    But what can you do?

    Oh yes they are predicting that there won't be any inflation next year either........
    But didn't they just print up a bunch of extra dollars?
    And doesn't that equal inflation?

    How can I word this to fit in here......

    Only welfare loving socialists would want a cost of living increase when there isn't inflation. I'm all for helping out my fellow man, and think soldiers need taken care of better. Just ask for more if you want it, I think you deserve it. That or make a case for inflation having occurred.

    I'm thinking at the rate Obama is handling the economy all Retiree's will be getting an IOU.

    Yep. Did the same ones complaining about this complain when it was said that SS COLA would not happen either?
