Economic future looks bleak for many
The 2020 cost of living adjustment for Social Security is expected to be about 1.8 percent, yet our our electric rates are going up and Piedmont Natural Gas is positioning for an 8 to 10 percent increase.
Gas for car is expected to hit $3 per gallon next year.
I’m a disabled veteran and with the recent revaluation the tax value of my house went from $235,00 to $285,000, causing my taxes to increase disproportionately.
They will jump from $2,515 to $3,116.
When and where does it end? The families of America are overwhelmed and many of our elderly and disabled will soon be on the street.
What is happening? Someone, somewhere needs to wake up. Society is broken.
