  •  Know what I got this year? (8+ / 0-)

    16,668k on my SSA-1099

    And you want to cut that?  Giving me the ole reach-around by promising me we will change it back to the original promise the country made to us in the future?  In this political climate?  By law my veteran benefits, and I am 100% permanent and total disabled combat vet, are tied to Soc Sec CPI.

    I gave my health for the country and you want to cut my veterans benefits?  My SSDI that I paid into?  Maybe that is not significant to you, but what was your shared sacrifice?

    I lose 9% purchasing power over 30 years, and I am in my mid 40s.  Let's see, what's 9% of 16,668... meh, probably isn't significant, eh?

    Don't be a dick, be a Democrat! Oppose CPI cuts! Support Social Security and Veteran Benefits!
