14. Cat food is $8 a pound. (A dollar for a 2 ounce can)

What they are really eating in our part of the country is beans and bread.

I own a small apartment complex where nearly all our tenants are 75+ years old. All worked their entire lives, and several are still working, because they draw a whole $947 a month from Social Security. After they pay our rent, which includes their electric and water bills, they have less than $350 to buy food, pay their medications, new socks if they need them for the whole month.

Forget owning a vehicle - no way with insurance and gasoline, even if paid for.

Most others live with their family, because most other rents are insanely high - 1 bedroom apartments are routinely $800+ with no utilities, with a requirement for first month, last month, and deposit to move in.

Just ordinary modest working people. Now why would anyone want to punish them for simply working their entire lives and doing the best they could?

Because you know, and I know, that Social Security has NO impact whatsoever on the deficit or debt, period. So these cuts, and that's what they are, are just for meanness. They are to mollycoddle a group of mean old bastards who hate and hate and yet somehow remain in office (Satan keeps his promises, apparently, although they always forget to ask for not being as ugly outside as they are on the inside.)

Mean people suck.

If the chained CPI actually goes into effect, I will act accordingly.
