No, not Coke or Pepsi but the cost of living adjustment as in Social Security check increases for inflation. The fact is that old folks have a lot of free time on their hands and as a result go to the polls and vote! So if the value of their SS checks are becoming increasingly meaningless they will go into the voting booth really pissed off and take it out on the incumbents!
The recent 8.7% COLA increases just 3 weeks before the 2022 election will cool them off considerably and will help re-elect the incumbents from both parties! This will also allow the golden oldies to keep pumping their social security checks into slot machines or lottery tickets!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
