"quart of half and half, six bagels, and a package of cream cheese" - none of these are part of a good nutritious intake on anything but a very rare occurrence. Better to use the extra money for more fruits and vegetables

"I am an old man and pauper with nothing but a pitiful SS check to show for a lifetime of work." The ill wisdom of counting on Social Security for retirement years has been known for many years. Hopefully, more of those still working (and being "an old man" does not preclude one from doing so) are now squirreling away a significant portion of it for those years when they are employed less or not at all.

I live primarily on Social Security because my physical limitations keep me from holding a regular job.  That proposed raise is about 4% of what I get each month.  That's about $8.50 a week, or, out here in the rural areas, a quart of half and half, six bagels, and a package of cream cheese.  Whoopee.  And I wouldn't exactly call that being greedy.

What an evil looking cartoon. It makes seniors look like greedy welfare recipients. Just one more group to hate. I would be very happy to simply have all of the money that me and my employers paid in over my lifetime in SS taxes (at compound interest) back. I would be a multi-millionaire today. Instead, I am an old man and pauper with nothing but a pitiful SS check to show for a lifetime of work.
