No Cost of Living Raise

My Mom lives on Social Security.  Since my Dad died this is her only source of income.  She doesn't make much, I really don't see how she makes enough to survive, but she somehow does.  For the last two years the government has failed to give seniors a cost of living increase for social security.  How can they claim that the cost of living hasn't went up?  Just check gas prices.

They were going to at least give them a one time $250.00 payment to make up for no yearly increase.  Well go read here and you can see how that turned out.   I really think the men and women that run our government are so far removed from the lives of the rest of us it's dangerous.
