    Does anyone else think it odd that a democratic party that claims to support Social Security cut out "cost of living" increases? My dad has been on Social Security for 20 years and this is the first year this increase was not awarded to these deserving elderly people that worked and placed so much money in this program. Obama I am sure looks at these people as not being able to vote much longer therefore they are not important. Besides that, most of them are conservatives and undeserving in his opinion.

    I am curious if the democratic party will claim they support the Social Security recipients this next election or will they finially come clean that they are only after the votes.

    what load of shit. if your dad's been on ss for 20 years, he's long past the point where he's withdrawing his $$ from ss.

    Uhhh, anybody who's cost of living raise is tied to the CPI didn't get a cost of living for the last 6 months. I know I didn't. Prices didn't increase... so no need for a COLA.

    That's an outright lie. Everyone on Social Security Retirement got a rather healthy cost of living increase this year--something like 3.5% as opposed to the usual measily 2% or less.

    Sen. Grassley from Iowa was on C-Span this morning, and that very statement was posed to him, which he responded to exactly the same. It's a lie, and people should not believe this rumor which is apparently traveling around the senior grapevine.

    If your Dad isn't able to keep up with what goes on with his SS, then you should do it for him. But for God's sake, get your facts straight first.

    Thanks for finding the confirmation. The SS raise was even more than I guessed.

    My two boys get SS because their mother died. They got an increase beginning in January. It was 5.8%, the highest increase in a long time due to the high inflation rate last year. Do seniors get two increases per year? I'm not certain. All I know is that my boys did get a substantial increase in January, so this sounds like a load of crap to me.
