    This is Rich. It's starting. Ohio, the Swing State that helped elect obama, your Federal Govt thanks you. (what have I been saying???) Not even a week out from the election. But note that the Agency withheld the news until after the big sweep.....

    Let's see how many of those who voted for the President kick themselves for doing so. I'm sure there will be a lot of them.

    This shouldn't surprise anyone, including those who put Obama in office.

    The handwritting was on the wall in 2009. Obama wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class. Within weeks he slapped a whopping tax on cigarettes with the greatest impact on the lower income levels. Stats show the majority of smokers today are in those levels. Obama had to know this, when he raised taxes on the poor.

    There isn't much that he'll (and his adminstration) will do that would surprise me. His track record for the last 4 years speaks for itself.

    Are you arguing for automatic increases?

    It has nothing to do with the election. It has to do with the winter, whether it is a warmer or a colder winter than normal. This would have happened regardless of who was elected ... unless they changed the guidelines.

    So will the guidelines be changed?

    If I remember correctly - the same or similar formula is used for Social security

    No he wanted to create jobs so we had less people on food stamps and other government assistance. That would have actually allowed us to raise the benefit per person because there would be fewer people who need it.
