Social Security Disparity



Our Congress, run by the Democratic Party majority, recently passed an annual pay increase for its member of 5 percent, or approximately $8,800 per member. Meanwhile, more than 50 million retirees on Social Security were recently notified that their Social Security payments would remain the same for next year, thus, for two years running.

If the current Democratic administration cannot justify a pay increase to retirees on Social Security then how can they and Democratic members of Congress justify a 5 percent pay increase to its members?

This disparity is unconscionable!

Retirees, you need to remember this when you vote on Nov. 2.
