Look How Social Security Is Shortchanging Seniors – Corruption Is Shaking Washington

Social Security has been a shocking discovery this few mounts. Despite President’s promises, seniors aren’t getting everything they’ve been promised.

It is a huge topic among Americans, as people paid into it with their taxes for decades.

Recently it’s been discovered that the Social Security office itself, uses creative accounting to short change every S.S. recipient in America.

Apparently the Social Security office is calculating your Cost of Living Allowance using some slighted math. They aren’t properly accounting for inflation and are only looking at certain months out of the year. This seems to be a scheme, in order to lower the amount of money they are providing to recipients.

Everything is skimped on, from tax returns, FEMA, Medicare, and Social Security.

…The formula used to determine the Social Security COLA lags behind official inflation numbers…

The COLA is based on the little-followed Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) instead of the ‘headline’ inflation number you read about each month…

…In years where there is deflation instead of inflation, the COLA is set to 0.0% and the formula skips that year in determining the next year’s COLA. We have had two deflationary years in the last 10 years (2009 and 2015), but this ‘skipping’ mechanism has resulted in three years of 0.0% COLAs…

Says Seeking Alpha.

The payouts the American seniors are receiving are much lower than the real cost of living in America and it`s not going to go over well for most Americans.

The main question we are left with is what the solution for this problem is.

Look What Democrats Want To Take Away From Senior Citizens Now

Liberals always look to punish those in need.

Even though they claim to help Americans, more often they harm people they think are getting in the way.

It’s especially true when you consider how they treat the elderly. Men and women who deserve our respect and consideration are often neglected by the system created by liberals.

They’ve suffered so much at the hands of democrats. And now we’re learning they might suffer even more.

From Free Beacon:

A Democratic alderman from Manchester, N.H. suggested at a recent committee meeting that he wants the government to create a program to get elderly people to leave their homes they can no longer afford, arguing the city “can’t be run by the elderly…”

Herbert described his 85-year-old neighbor who cannot afford to stay at her house, saying that instead of offering her tax credits, the government should have a program to get her out of her home.

“I’ve got an 85-year-old woman that lives across the street, and, and she won’t give up her house,” Herbert said. “She’s sitting on $350,000 and she can’t afford it anymore, and you’re saying give her a tax credit. No, we should have a program that gets her out of the house.”

Typical Socialist rhetoric. If they deem someone is no longer useful, they want to get rid of them.

Imagine that. People who worked hard all their lives, who contributed to this country, who paid into Social Security and other programs. Now that they’re too old to work, the left want to just kick them to the curb.

Yet I’m sure Herbert wants to provide free housing, healthcare, and food for illegal immigrants. American citizens? They need to get out!

There is a reason for this kind of double standard. Elderly Americans, who worked hard to build this country, often hold to conservative values. They also stand up for what they believe in and vote accordingly.

Minorities, especially illegal immigrants, are easier to control by the government. They’ll do whatever liberals tell them to, because they promise them handouts.

Not a surprise this liberal wants to get rid of the elderly.
