January 31, 2011
Dear President Obama,
Dear Representative Rehberg,
Dear Senator Baucus,
Dear Senator Tester,
With out a auto yearly, COLA raise, the following things will accrue,
You need to raise Social Security for all the people who are on it. Why should we be punished and not receive a raise? Some people that's the only check that they will receive to pay their bills. People's bills go up sure as rent,mortages,lights,water & sewer,insurance if you can afford it for your health or even your automobile.We have paid into this fund for years and now were not intitled to a raise? I thought that there was an automatic rasie every year since 1975 when the bill was past,why have you decided to go back on your promise that we will automaticaly receive our raises.
I hope that you will consider raising our Social Security each and every year as the bill that already exist,you don't stop medicare from going up when you don't give us our raise as promised by our goverment. If you do this then you have lied to us,which has been done before for the good of the country. If our goverment stop taking money from Social Security to pay off other bills then it would be solid for all who have paid into the fund and the people like my daughter who is paying for us baby boomers,their children will be paying in for them. If you just stop and think what it will do to this country to stop raises that are suppose to happen and don't receive them this is an injustice to all who have paid into the fund.

Do you think it is really a good idea to send such a poorly worded petition, rife with compositional errors and plainly demonstrating misunderstanding of fact?
My guess is that this would go straight to the trash even if the recipient agreed with the sentiment.
COLA is a Cost of Living Adjustment. It isn't an automatic increase as your petition implies. If you feel that it is based on improper indices, argue that. Otherwise you really aren't saying anything.
Also, a bill is "passed", not "past". It's "entitled" not "intitled". There's more, but it's really too much to fix.
Yep - hardly enough to buy cases of ammo these days let alone another trunk full of GUNS GUNS GUNS
Gonna need them when China invades!
....but whaaatttta about the boooooze!
Just noticed this - China will not ever think about invading such a godless country full of rabid right wing confused people and old people with guns - they are just going to buy everything

Through our working years we all paid for Social Security and Medicare, so why are they considered entitlements when in fact we contributed our own money into the system?

Does he really think that the solution to the dwindling social security fund is to privatize it? Perhaps it would be a better idea to return the money that has been "borrowed" without our consent? ...
