The Other Homeland Security?

24 Nov

Senior citizens won’t be getting any raises in their Social Security checks next year. There will be no Cost of Living Adjustment for about 65 million Senior Citizens in 2016. That’s the first time in 5 years because…well, you know, the cost of living has gone down. Hasn’t it?

The inflation measure used by the Social Security Administration was down 0.6% for the 12 months that ended in September — and what does the SSA base it’s inflation measure on?…Gas prices of course!

Because…well, you know…what senior citizens do the most is…drive around, right? It’s not like paying the rent or eating, or medicine or health care are on their lists of top priorities. Nope. It’s like they always say: Fuel is wasted on the young.

Anyway, while those seniors can gas up their cars next year with no worries, they’ll have to do without their annual 22 dollar per month raise! That doesn’t sound like a lot but, then again, when you multiply 22 dollars by 65 million?  well, that sure is a lot of extra money to help fight the bad guys with, whoever and wherever they might be.

And Thankfully, here in the U.S. we’ve all got our priorities straight. Happy motoring!
