The Freeze Is Coming! The Freeze Is Coming!!

Really? People made all these plans on Monday for something that WON'T happen next year? Must everything include such drama?  I'm not faulting or criticizing those on Social Security, who no doubt could use more money, but am knocking the mindset that produces stories like this.

An analysis of whether the formula written into law that leads to this kind of freeze would be helpful. How about a little comparison to workers who also won't get a pay raise in the coming year?

AP - Seniors prepared to cut back on everything from food to charitable donations to whiskey as word spread Monday that they will have to wait until at least 2012 to see their Social Security checks increase.
