My mother is lucky if she has enough money for food by the end of the month, while costs keep going up. And like someone asked earlier, why do senators and so called representatives get raises whiles the people they are SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT go hungry?

I know that our seniors is and was one of the hardest working class of people there is. They have worked and payed in their social security all their life's and the cost of living is not getting no cheaper. So we need someone in office who is gonna take care of the people who took care of this country, and the seniors, and the disabled, and get us back on our feet!

Not only seniors, but disabled people are deliberately kept (I don't know why) underneath the local poverty lines by the Government. People who are married as apposed to just iving together are considered "one person," and if both are disabled, they each get about 1/2 of the normal check that each person in an equal couple who aren't married would get a whole of. If they aren't married, they count as two people. Anyway, this sort of thing isn't fair. If they were making enough money to not...

No one should have to go without basic needed items.

I see how the elderly are living on pennies a day. It's abusive when they've worked their whole lives, paid into social security and now are made to live below the poverty level. What kind of heartless person wouldn't care about this cause?

It is a SAD situation when Seniors who have worked & paid into their SS for 40+ years to have at least enough $$ to buy food & meds in their old age, are sufferig & unable to do so., while illegals sneak into this Country, & go directly to Social Services & start drawing SS checks & Food Stamps etc. & have not paid into the systems at all. Such a shame that our elderly are not getting paid enough, but having to forefit part of their SS to support illegals.
Our Elders fought for & built this...

Our Elders fought for & built this Country & deserve our respect & support, AND deserve an increase in their SS checks, at least as often as Congress gives themselves one!
Congress AND their wifes live a life style of riches at our expense. What has happened to Human Decency & the Honor & respect we use to give to our elders?
Please HELP change this unfair situation!

Because there is need for it! Prices continually rise. If we were an honest nation and put budgeted monies where they actually belong? I sincerely believe we have embezzlement of many of our government leaders, whether it be illegal or legal, it is wrong!

It is only right that our seniors on social security be aloud to have a increase. They can not live on what they get now. Now give it to them. Everything cost more and they have to be able to keep up with it.

Yes, it is very sad to see what has become to the elderly on SSI now. Sadder yet is when the economy was "booming" and jobs were "plenty" freeloaders that were TOO LAZY to work for a living and wanted to lay on their A$$E$ were finding an excuse to abusing the SSI system and many of the very same still ARE!
