Who said anything about cutting SS? CPI might lower the increases though.
WHich Prez/Congress didn’t even give a COLA to SS recipients for the couple of years?
CPI is already one of the most heavily cooked numbers on the planet, and the Republicans say they want to tweak it to cook the numbers even more, resulting in less SS for people who spent their lives paying into it.
But you may be in the camp that considers SS “welfare.”
This regime did not put through any COLA increases for SS recipients the first two years. The last two increases have been eaten up by Medicare increases.
