    A new dawn for America as the Democrats

    Good try. Retirees that are on fixed income, means the retirement benefits do not go up, no COLA. Social security, military, federal pensions do have a COLA. Most retirees do not get yearly increases in their pensions. Retire today and 40 years later you receive the same amount. Put this on a moderate inflation rate say 2%/year and your purchasing power has decreased 80%. I know people that are in this class. Put something in the MW law that covers them and I might agree with you. MW creates a new group of poor every time MW goes up. Let's hope when you retire you are in the groups that get a COLA.
