Pensioners need an increase

Dear Sir:

Pensioners spend their money. An increase is needed. The Conservatives created the deficit, let them take a cut in income.

In a consumer driven economy spending more money is the name of the game. Given an increase in incomes, seniors would help the economy, not hurt it. It works the same as giving money to corporations, eh?

We are poised to see the Hunger Games happen. In this plot there are two levels of society: the rich and the impoverished. If the poor are recruited to fight in the wars and they come back alive they advance. But who pays their incomes? Will seniors be on the front lines of those wars?

Brian Gregg,

Terrace, B.C.
