    WASHINGTON — As if voters don't have enough to be angry about this election year, the government is expected to announce this week that more than 58 million Social Security recipients will go through another year without an increase in their monthly benefits.
    It would mark only the second year without an increase since automatic adjustments for inflation were adopted in 1975. The first year was this year.
    "If you're the ruling party, this is not the sort of thing you want to have happening two weeks before an election," said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy commissioner at the Social Security Administration and now a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.



    Obama has a $1.1 trillion in budget and will not help people on social security?


    why should I even vote for obama?


    My ex girl friend lives on social security and she lives in a trailer with no power. I help her out when I can . when she finds out about it she will be crying just like last year.

    I agree with you, but know that Republicans, if they are able, will abolish Social Security and Medicare!

    you're so silly. Didn't you know that the big bad democrats are responsible for anything and everything wrong with this country?

    oh and its all Obama's fault too. He's a muslim that hates America, therefore you should go out and vote for the republicans, who care so deeply for the average American citizen. :rolleyes:
