I note that seniors are getting shafted again. The stimulus package gives seniors a one-time payment of $250. On the other hand, those who are working get an extra $l0 to $20 each week in tax savings or $520 to $1,040 per year.
On health care the same inequity exists. If you are working, your contribution to your health-care plan is tax-free. If you are retired, the amount you pay into your health-care plan is taxable. In other words, workers pay with pre-tax dollars and retirees with after-tax dollars.
When the law was written, seniors were ignored.
