My son-in-law works for the government and he is being furloughed one day a week resulting in a 20% decrease in their income. Since I supplement my brother's disability income I'm constantly watching what is happening with Social Security. (like many other seniors)
I get so frustrated with our elected officials....it doesn't appear that anyone is really looking out for the average American. They are too busy protecting special interest groups and the wealthy. I can only hope and pray that we will see improvement somewhere down the road.
