Legislated inadequacy.

I am writing in reference to the heated debate about VA benefits and Social Security. One point is being overlooked in the discussion: all Congressmen, Senators and ex-Presidents get a federal retirement and Social Security retirement. They are one of the only groups that are allowed to dip full from both wells without a penalty. So while they attempt to erode my Social Security benefits because I receive a disability check from the VA, I say shame and no thank you. I'll take the same benefits you vote for yourselves. Mary J.
