I recently posted a question on a Facebook retirement planning group. Basically the question was why should retired Americans be entitled to higher COLAs when many working Americans have just as much trouble keeping up with inflation.
Remember, the question was about higher COLAs, not questioning the current COLA formula.
Take a look:
I was shocked at the responses which called for deleting the question, and, of course, claimed retirees deserved higher COLAs because they needed to cope with inflation.
But then I saw the above. Too much discussion (mostly in disagreement) and promoting a political point of view?
There is nothing political in my question. It’s logical and serious, but that does not matter. Anything related to Social Security has been politicized, Americans are mislead and too many are simply focused on themselves regardless of the consequences.
