No increase?

Dear Editor:
Senior citizens will not receive an increase in social security this year. Congress says that the cost of living did not rise. What planet are they living on? You can bet your life that they will vote to increase their over inflated salaries.
The fact is everything has gone up: groceries, rent, taxes, prescriptions, health care, telephone service, just to name a few.
Look for more people to become unemployed, and the recession to continue as senior citizens spend much less in the coming months.
It appears that the people who need the most help are always penalized. The next congressional elections should be interesting as some of these people are voted out of office and replaced by new and more responsible representatives.
