RAISE THE SOCIAL SECURITY COLA FOR 2013

The Social Security Administration does not include the cost of FOOD or GASOLINE in their COLA adjustments!!
The Cost Of Living Adjustment should be changed to include the cost of food and fuel; these two items are our largest out of pocket expenses. Millions of SENIORS depend solely on SSA for their very existence and this VERY SMALL COLA will require that millions of SENIORS choose between food and gas or medicine and healthcare.

      I am unable to pay my rent, food and utilities and have to ask my children for financial support which is embarrassing after paying into the system for over twenty years before I became very ill.

      If govt lessens COLA, more people will need help such as food stamps, aid with rent and utilities. It is a stupid move.

      We aren't making money on this, we are just trying to keep our heads above water. It's not working as it is!
