"I'm guessing that a good many young people are experiencing how the Congress actually works and are getting a realistic civics lesson."Folks are 'getting the message'.Congress and the fed workers get a $3000/yr increase.Medicare premiums go up more than 5%.THose on SS get zip, and likely to get no cost of living increase for the next 3 years.Meanwhile, every fed worker gets a 2% raise, and most state workers get a 2-4% increase this year. HOwever....the tens of millions barely getting by on SS have to pay higher Medicare premiums but get no COLA?Yep......only Congress would vote themselves a pay raise ...and only fed and gov't workers DEMAND pay raises when inflation supposedly is zero...That is how your government works......t.
