  • Limiting COLA for Federal Retirees and Social Security
    FedRet-Vegas
    We are on FIXED incomes. Food and medicine, especially continue to go up. Not to mention gasoline. Does your calculations take into account medical increases? We have no options of getting additional money. It's not like we could even find a job, which would cost us more than we'd make. Most of us are middle/poor income. We didn't have the luxury of "saving" as we brought up our families. Life expectancy is getting into the 100s and you want to cut off our ability to live that long? Without keeping up with cost of living we will not be able to afford medical care. Hence, you are killing us off.

  • Limiting COLA's

    Why should the real cost of living and how they compute the COLA have anything to do with each other? I am sure when the formula that is used now was thought of it was thought that if would keep the coat of living amount down and it did not, so now they are trying to find another formula to keep the COLA lower
