First they cancel the social security COLA to save money but then they turn around and want to personally pay each one some cash. These scumbags are thinking everyone is too stupid to notice that they are just trying to buy votes.

Most of the elderly folks I've known would have a good laugh at a one-time $250.00 pay-off. A lot of elderly spend that much and more every single month just on medications. If Obama thinks the elderly can be bought off for $250.00 he is more stupid than I thought.
