    I think they are proposing a one time increase in the SS benefit at 85 to help compensate for the long-term effect of the chained CPI.
    Being dead and rotting so they won't have to pay.  For fuck sake, it would be better if we got hit by an ELE (Extinction Level Event) so we wouldn't have to think about how fucked the next several decades are going to be for seniors; it'd be over in a flash and we wouldn't be left here to suffer, become abjectly poor and starving someday.

    I'm not there yet but I no longer believe that Social Security will even be around for me to collect.  I'm 53 now.  If all that money that I EARNED OVER THE DECADES gets stolen from me - karmic payback, divine justice is going to be steep.  Shame on all of them and shame on our POTUS for selling us out like this.  For some folks THIS is THE ONLY MONEY they have.  Why not just load granny and grampy on a fucking ice floe and say buh-bye already?!

    I really hate American pols and America today.
