98. It is called sacrifice and I'm doing it also. Remember, senior
citizens didn't get their cola this year, nor will we get it next year, etc. Already I know that I will get about $50 less after my increases in medicare, health co-pays, drugs, etc. and I am healthy, comparatively. Did senior citizen sacrifices mean anything? Were there people in the streets on our behalf? NO. Sure people spoke out against it, but they just didn't understand. All of our expenses are going up and our benefit is going down, down, down. Sometimes, you have to draw a line in the sand, and that time is now. There is a reason they call it "The Catfood Commission".
