Oh, goodie, the vampire COLA change for SocSec is baaaaaaack--
It's "in the mix" for trading for the debt ceiling.
This is something Dems in Congress fought fiercely to prevent being imposed on SocSec recipients, back in the Bush days, probably back in St. Ronnie's time in the WH as well.
And DEMS WON. People won.
But that was back when they gave a damn about their constituents and their votes and their welfare. Back before banksters and Wall Street and Big Bidness had bought the Democratic leadership and most of its DC pols.
And, if you have a cat, you have probably been seeing the price of cat food going up and up and up. Some 5.5 oz cans now run .89 to over a dollar, if not on sale (reminds me, I have to get some on sale food before the prices change at midnight...). No decent cat food for you greedy geezers!
