Eliminate pensions

To the Editor:

With the increase in Medicare Part B, Supplement Part F and D, my benefits per month went up by $3 after our modest increase of 1.6 percent. Now they want to do away with COLA?

Also, someone please tell me how this is an entitlement program when my employers and I have made all the contributions? Color me fed up, put all government employees and elected officials on Social Security, and get rid of pensions.
