“State benefit reduction to affect needy elderly, blind, disabled”

This article talks about the recent notices sent to many in Pennsylvania on SSI who are now facing a decrease in their benefits.  It was posted on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s website on January 30, 2010 and can be found in full at this address …. http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/regional/s_664791.html#  … I’ve started calling this whole thing a “cost of living decrease” and certainlly hope that the polititians who voted yes to this do NOT even consider voting for a raise for themself.  Like many others effected by this I am far from impressed.

The reduction went unnoticed until recipients began receiving letters last week from the state Department of Public Welfare. Statewide some 345,000 face cuts including 6,000 children.
