War Between The Generations

There was no cost of living increase in Social Security payments this year because ... well, there was no increase in the cost of living.

But this isn't fair to Seniors because they've always gotten raises in the past and, you know, they expect it. And American politics is not about dampening expectations among any voter group and especially not the one with the highest percentage likely to actually go to the polls. Old people, you see, vote. Young people go skateboarding and middle-aged people are too tired from working those two jobs.

So, a nice little $250 check will be going out to everyone on Social Security – to include, one assumes, Ross Perot and others in his tax bracket –and these checks will be honored by people who are, at present, too young to vote.
