in response to the financial crisis of 2008 obama cut the cost of living increases for social security. he cut my money. so as the wall street guys get bonus and bailout all the seniors get less. how is this fair? it's a slow death for a senior. now each month i have to decide what i can pay and what i have to let go. we now have this black president that has put me in more pain than bush ever did. so when they ask me if i am better off under this black president i have to say that i am much worse off than i was before.
