Default Bellyaching

Some people seem to think the COLA is their due in order to keep ahead, and that lack of one means they are falling behind. But actually the whole idea behind the existence of COLA's is to keep people even - neither ahead nor behind. In practice this works out imperfectly in both directions, as it is widely acknowledged that the 2009 COLA (the most recent one for Soc. Sec.) was "too high".

Well, on second thought, nothing will keep some people from moaning, groaning, and bellyaching. They will just say that the 2012 COLA (assuming there is one) is too little (regardless of how much it turns out to be) to "make up" for not having a COLA at all two years running. Mark my words.
Sounds like the pot is calling the kettle black.

An alter-ego of one your internet adversaries, I suspect. He won't be back.
