Nicely said. Of course, Congress gets a raise, and seniors do not. The seniors and other special interest groups have put themselves into the position of being a "too dependable group of voters" for the party of ending Constitutional Rights. If their vote is dependable, you do not have to do very much for them, and can do much to them. Seniors, minorities, and often veterans have allowed themselves to be bought cheaply. The Congress Critters have given them a little of others money, and bought their votes. Now, they are trying to buy others.

Another "stimulus plan"...just eliminate the very old, handicapped and babies. OBAMA should really look at the history of Planned Parenthood and why it really began in the first place. I don't think he would be so supportive if he knew the truth.

Where do the Consumer Price Index people live? In a cave with no utilities or cars or whatever? How can they say the Cost Of Living did not increase? Gas prices have gone up and the cost to live in assisted living or any homes has gone up. Do they check all areas in the United States or just Washington. Also it must be nice that
Congress can give themselves a raise anytime they want and can retire with the same amount of money they get paid now and don't have to rely on Medicare and Social Security to live on. If they had to live on Social Security, then the SS system would be taken care of really well and we would not have to worry of it running out of money.In other words, make Congress and Senators retire on Social Security and not what they get paid while and active Congressman or Senator.

There will be some big changes in Congress in 2010 -- Just another nail in their coffin

I have always voted for Dem. because I thought they were for the people (little guys like myself). Its ok to bail out the banks, its ok to give themselves a nice raise, its ok to do a lot of things except give me my ss cost of living. I am afraid you greedy self serving @#$%&$#@ have lost my vote for a long time or maybe forever since you decided that seniors no longer matter. Its seems its ok to give our tax dollars to everybody in the world except us seniors. I have no way to earn more money....does anyone blame me for feeling so darn mad? Yes there will be big changes in 2010.

NOW IS THE TIME TO CHANGE HOW THE COST OF LIVING IS DETERMINED. WE HAVE TO INCLUDE FOOD, FUEL, BOTH HEATING AND GASOLINE, MEDICAL EXPENSES AMD TAXES. GASOLINE IS UP 60 CENTS A GALLON. WHY ARE FORIGNERS CONTROLLING SOCIAL SECURITY, DISABLED AND DISABLED VETERANS COLA? WHO NEEDS TO FIGHT TERRIORISTS WHEN THEY ARE DESTROYING US FINANCIALLY? OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE DESTROYING THE ELDERLY, SS DISABLED AND DISABLED VETERANS WITHOUT A LIFE ENDING CONFRENCE. NOW IS THE TIME TO SUPPORT "NO COLA NO VOTE". WE HALF TO FIRE OBAMA, THE DEMOCRATS AND WASHINGTON BEAURACRATS WHO ARE STARVING OUT 57 MILLION ELDERLY, DISABELD AND DISABLED VETERANS.
THE WAY WE FIGURE THE COST OF LIVING IS WRONG AND NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED IT NOW! 57 MILLION VOTES AGAINST THE CULPRITS WILL GET THE JOB DONE! THANK YOU BOB OBST
