'Boost for the Best'

January 11, 1987

May I please request that the approval for increases in Social Security benefits be transferred to the federal commission that is recommending increases in salary for the Congress, White House personnel and members of the judiciary.

The increase on my Social Security check, just received, was $5 a month, or $60 a year--quite a difference between 75%, or $75,000 per year, which is being proposed for the above-mentioned Washington "dignitaries."

The automatic increase of $5 in my Social Security benefit was described as "based on the rise in the cost of living." What describes the above-mentioned 75% increase? Can it be that Congress, the White House personnel and the judiciary are living in a section of our country separate from the rest of us?
