You missed the Rev's point. He is saying (I believe) that military retirees COLA payments are tied to SS recipient's COLA raises. Why are SS recipients getting a $250. bribe, (err, I mean check) as Obama is proposing and not milatary retirees?
Personally I believe, even though it affects my family's income, that COLAs should not be paid if not warranted, but I also believe that bribes to old folks is just a cheap trick right before an election.
i don't think anybody is likely to change their vote for 250 bucks.
