Bill did nothing for worker care To the editor: Reno Hetzel makes two valid points in his April 21 letter to the editor. The first point, however, he answers himself. He did not "hear my voice" about the plight of the uninsured worker because the Wal-Mart bill does absolutely nothing to address that, nor does it even give one additional person the benefit of health insurance. That is one of the glaring faults of the Wal-Mart bill. My business associate and I ran a small business for 38 years through some very difficult times, but I am proud to say that health insurance was available to our employees for every single day of those 38 years.

“Concerning the article in the paper, to 'Toss out the tea party,' by Kathleen Parker, when you're spending $300 billion a month and we are borrowing $120 billion of that, that is almost 43 cents out of every dollar. I thank God for people who are willing to stop spending and see where we can save. And I believe also that our founders, if she would check, when she made light about people praying to Jesus, I believe she will find out that our founders did a lot of praying before they made decisions.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- There will be no cost-of-living increase for more than 50 million Social Security recipients next year, the first year without a raise since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. Blame falling consumer prices. By law, cost-of-living adjustments are pegged to inflation, which is negative this year because of lower energy costs. Social Security payments, however, do not go down even when prices drop. The Obama administration, meanwhile, is pursuing a different way to boost recipients' income.

For the first time in at least three decades, federal Social Security payments might not rise next year. A 2009 Social Security trustees report projects there won't be a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in 2010. The answer won't be known until October, Social Security Administration spokesman Mark Lassiter said. The Social Security COLA was 2.3 percent in 2008 and 5.8 percent in 2009, according to the Social Security Administration. The report says "the effects of the recession and a decline in the price of a barrel of oil in late 2008" seem to have caused the overall Consumer Price Index (CPI)
