A cheap election ploy

Just a couple of thoughts on the $500 one time payment for old age pensioners next month. It's a cheap pre election ploy by the Liberals. The proper thing to do would be to give the seniors, receiving the G.I.S. a decent raise, (without subtracting it from the GIS) instead of the paltry 1 or 1.5% so called cost of living increase.

The cost of everything far outweighs the raise we get. It seems all industries have jumped on the "Covid" bandwagon and raised prices. We, on fixed incomes, are finding it harder, to make ends meet.

Just my thoughts. Maybe someone can add their thoughts too.
