9. Applies only to Vets???

This amendment helps Seniors on Social Security by using a formula for COLA that Republicans wanted to get rid. The formula now used is somewhat fair but, does not take into account that we seniors pay for drugs that go up by as much as 10 to 15% every year. What is our Cola?? This year it was 1.7% The Republican plan would mean a BIG reduction in future years for reciprients. Even Obama offered to put the CHAINED CPI on the "TABLE" for negotiations. Thank goodness for these Senators. You need to get your facts straight before posting. BTW, why does this bother you when it comes to our vets, of which I happen to be one???
