Pay raises and other things
December 30, 2009
Seems a nerve was stuck!! If
Mr. Kling were to once again read the piece on pay raises and
other things it will become clearer for him and other like thinking
"Yes, the basis of COLA
rules dictated no increase to SS this year. Yet, Congress voted
themselves a healthy pay raise in spite of the zero cost of living
increasing. While the names given below are Democrat. Senator
Begich and our Republicans Sen. Murkowski and Representative
Young willingly accepted the pay increases."
It clearly stated that the "Basis of COLA rules dictated
no increase for SS this year." It did not reference Congress
for that result. It referenced the Basis (Formula).
Congress as a whole, accepted an annual pay increase based on
what if not a preconceived inflationary cost of living. Okay
for the elite Congress, not okay for the common man. Should we
not all share in the common pain? Should not that pain include
Congress being included in any National Health Care outcome?
Congress should not but are exempting themselves from shared
Perhaps the information and relationship of a COLA increase or
lack there of, to the seemingly automatic pay increase to Congressional
members to adjust for inflation, which the COLA formula indicated
not justified for 2009/10, or Congress exempting themselves from
being forced into a National Health Care plan is not the threshold
of knowledge Mr. Kling wishes you and I to ponder. That FOX is
given the credit by Mr. Kling for my acquiring this data leads
to the obvious question. If not FOX which is an assumption on
Mr. Kling's part, who in the MSM gives us meaningful information
About: "An old Alaskan
getting by on the interest of the money he owes."
