Andrew/Pete/Bruce: About That $250 Social Security Payment...
My recollection is that the automatic cost-of-living adjustment for Social Security was put in place so that members of Congress would not be tempted to adopt legislation that provided a larger-than-inflation increase every year. That temptation proved to too much for most members so the "look ma no hands" approach was adopted.
Does anyone think that this won't be the most bipartisan vote of the year in the House and Senate?
I'm guessing 430 to 5 in the House and 96 to 3 in the Senate.
Wonder what the over/under is going to be?
