Social Security & COLA

Today, the news was all over the unfair fact that Social Security recipients won’t receive a COLA increase. Costs are going up but SS won’t – and much of the rhetoric I heard was criticism for the decision.

I don’t know much about Social Security and I am not planning on it for my retirement. I do know that I am not getting a raise this year, nor is my husband, nor are many of my friends. So I am trying to understand how other people for whom I am paying retirement (that I don’t expect to recoup) deserve a raise when I am not getting a raise. And I am the one WORKING.
