Common Sense Commentary: I don't mind the cut, but I hate the lie. Since there absolutely is inflation in our country, but they lie and say, "No inflation, no raise", Social Security checks, absent the inflationary raise, will be a cut in the amount of the inflation they say doesn't exist. It is a political can of worms.
Our Government juggles the facts and numbers on inflation, unemployment, interest rates and practically everything else under their control. The Government says there is little or no inflation. But, when we pay $5 for things that cost $2, three years ago, that's inflation. Whereas, everybody knows prices are going up on nearly everything. The thing most people cannot comprehend is, that higher prices are not caused by evil businesses trying to increase their income, but by the evil Federal Reserve printing so much new money that every dollar is worth less, has less buying power, and therefore, buys less, so we pay more. It is an abstract idea which is difficult for the human brain to process. Casey Research, which published the article below, is somewhat akin to a computer. It processes millions of facts efficiently and correctly but has no heart, soul or spirit. It can't be called a "Christian" organization, but like a good computer, it is quite accurate on secular and monetary facts. Many a good physician, mechanic, and scientist are experts in physical, material and secular things but are not Christians. If I am in a Muslim country and get run over by a herd of camels, I would rather have a Muslim physician treat me than a Christian missionary. The same is true of financial advisers. I will listen to an honest, unsaved expert before I take the financial advice of a born again Christian brother who can't pay his bills. RB.

Government employees get to do a lot of things that would land an ordinary citizen in prison.
