10. The point is this.

What has the cost of your food done?...or all the other expenses you have?

If you get a 25 dollar raise in your SS and your expenses go up 50 are you getting more or less?

I too am on SS, and I can no longer eat meat regularly...which is probably a good thing.
but as the prices of food goes up I must eat less quality of food...and I seldom eat out....and cook everything from scratch.
the last time I bought a battery for my car I paid 50 bucks for it...about 4 or 5 years ago....just had to buy one again and it cost me 100...yet my income did not increase by 100 percent.
Those are the built in cuts to SS that the COLA was supposed to solve.
