Congress steals more money out of Grandma's mouth

After Congress decreed that there would be no cost-of-living increase this year for Social Security recipients, the Obama administration supported a $250 one-time payment to each recipient to cover this discrepancy.

But the spleezixdolf Congress is where all good ideas come to an end.

Congress has now rejected the $250 bonus, saying it would cost too much.

What??? Congress voted themselves a huge pay raise and called that a cost-of-living increase (at the same time they rejected a cost-of-living increase for Social Security), yet they never said that would cost too much.

They kept throwing money at Bush's illegal war in Iraq, which has cost many times more than the Social Security bonus would have.

All this after Social Security recipients spent their lives working and paying into the system.

That's $250 your grandparents won't see now, all because of Congress.
